Default diy crew: can someone recommend a good set of dies for a hydraulic press?

I can't find anyone to rebuild my vw's transmission, so I'm just going to do it myself.

Just split my O2A yesterday. It was missing a few teeth on third gear. I am going to use roll bar tubing in the press to reinstall the gears.

I've have so many transmission problems. Most recently I had a transmission built by a vw tech on the side, and the new 1st gear lasted 6 weeks.

I broke a quaife diff once and quaife then decided, "we warranty the gears in the diff, not the spline you broke." My peloquin has been stout though.

I've never done a trans before. Aside from watching that "ron" guy's video of the tear down, what do I need to know aside from making a few tools?

A mapp gas torch makes getting 5th gear off alot easier.
