haha, they're a solid box the Getrag 6 really, 'if' looked after, obviously left leaking they'll suffer, just as they would from abuse, getting on now aren't they, the selector shaft bearings can tire, some have had synchro wear, plenty have broken slave cylinder lower mounts as they're low/front, also some with input shaft bearing wear, these are all few and far between but I remember seeing posts. I have one here that failed due to lack of oil due to a shaft seal leak, another here with a broken selector shaft fitting for 5th/6th gear, also a fractured selector fork but that might have been consequential.

were yours Midland or Getrag?
