Alright folks here is a heads up for those kitting a za. After about 20 years or so, those tasty looking red shift dampners in the ZA50 2nd gear main shaft get brittle and fall apart and without them, your tranny will destroy itself. This was the case in a za I recently acquired.
Some fix it by using epoxy and hose or tubing, but I was weary about how any plastic or rubberized tubing would hold up in there so, here is my solution.
1. Buy a cheap latex mold latex mold kit from a hobby shop
2. Make mold of original shift dampner
3. Pour epoxy into newly created dampner mold
3. Let dry, and put new dampners into 2nd gear main shaft
