Where to get second gears

Hi, I'm a new owner of a 91' testarossa. Unfortunately, there was some noise coming out from the transmission when accelerating in second gear. A local specialist opened the transmission, the second gear was worn. Was told to replace the gears in pair with better result. However, they are not able to source the pair of gears. Would like to ask if you know where I can buy those gears. Thank you.

Rumor has it new improved gears are being reproduced for the TR gearbox. You might have to wait a little!

Are you the profile police? Some people like their privacy, you need to respect that.

this has nothing to do with profile police. we are here a large community with a lot of knowledge and I think if someone join new he/she may introduce and fill out the profile. like in real life when you join a group never seen/meet before you minimum say "hello" and not just ask questions.
also if someone join a forum he knows that he will give up some of his privacy.

my meaning, but may be I`m too old? a bit of decency and friendliness has never hurt

I believe Ferrari is out of the spare parts remake on older cars. I was in Modena last September at an Italian car show. Vendor displaying all kind of older remade parts up to the Daytona. Talked to the owner and he said Ferrari destroyed all the older patterns. He sells his better than new remakes to Ferrari Classic, when they are restoring older cars for customers.

My 1987 has 40,000 miles, 1st and 2nd gear were spalled. This is I believe a common problem with these cars. ZF possibly made the gears, Rumor is not proper heat treat. My car had a noisy 1st gear, but shifted fine and worked without any problems.

Q is still: where to order these sets of gears ....

And at what prices ? I heared that a set would be over USD 3500 ...
