I have a minor problem with my toploader when cold, I seem to be able to pick up reverse whilst going for 2nd. When the car has warmed up, it shifts very well, and is nice and notchy.
The gearbox is a little noisey, and I plan on rebuilding it in 12 -18 months, with new linkages, clutch and a new shifter (Currently has an XY shifter, which is too short for the mustang).
My thoughts are that the oil is possibly too thick (I haven't changed it since I bought the car), and that it needs a change. What oil/additives would you suggest? Any other recommendations?
'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!
