T-5 Manual Shifting troubles

Hey all
When i shift quickly from 2nd to 3rd above 3000 rpm it crunches, and i have to slowly change, but under 3 g's it fine, does anyone have the same problem or if not can anyone offer some suggestions???

Re: T-5 Manual Shifting troubles

The 2-3 cluster gear is renowned for being weak and the synchros aren't much better. Try double clutching or you're up for a synchro replacement.

Have you tried changing to a synthetic high quality oil yet?

Yup, new balk rings for your 2-3 synchro assembly should do the trick... If I was you I'd go for the entire assembly, no point in replacing just the rings.

Yep, nothing like replacing $900 worth of componantry when $80 worth will fix it.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Re: T-5 Manual Shifting troubles

Personally I know I'd just change the synchros :)
Although while the box was out I'd inspect it all, and probably end up doing the bearings too at $550

Re: T-5 Manual Shifting troubles

Did you inspect the drive dogs for damage, and did you get the preload correct?

Re: T-5 Manual Shifting troubles

Re: T-5 Manual Shifting troubles

No. No shifter will make any difference to the actual internal operation of the box. Short throw units will probably exagerate any shift baulk problems.

SO what do I actually need and where do I get it from?
