Tremec 5 spd BA's

Has anyone had any problems with reverse gear in their BA 5 speeders?

Ford deny any problems ever with reverse gear.

I would love to hear if anyone else has experienced a stripped reverse gear.

Very common, but to admit to it is to admit that you were looking for "R" for race, they don't do it by themselves.

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

This one did.

Completely stripped reverse gear only.

How do you deliberately strip reverse gear only?

Re: Tremec 5 spd BA's

Reverse is constant mesh, full synchro. The selector is detented. They will go into (and destroy )reverse while travelling forward, but they will not go in by themselves. Even a violent fifth gear jump out will not do it, as the lockout will stop the selecot from crossing the neutral gate. Which actual gear did it strip?

The reverse gear on the cluster shaft.

It was destroyed by the reverse idler gear.

Has the car ever had a new reverse gear, idler or cluster fitted? If not, was the box noisy from new? Ben.

The box was original, never been out of the car, it had jumped out of 1st & reverse occasionaly, but not on a regular basis & was not noticably noisey.

Very strange. I have seen where mis-matched componants cause problems, but the box will scream beforehand. Ben.
