Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

Did you replace the synchro's? I don't believe that comes in the overhaul kit. Popping out of gear while deccelerating is most likely old/worn synchros.


My tranny pops out of second gear during deceleration.

: I completely re-did by tranny with a rebuild kit from Walck, replaced the mainshaft and necessary gears and bearings. I bought the videotape (can't remember the name of the guy who sells them - it's excellent!) and followed it very carefully. The gear which slides to complete the shift from 2 to 3 moves easily and completely from end as it should. I rebuilt my shift tower and replaced the ball bearings and coil springs in the detents, and they seem to lock tightly in place. I have tried a second rebuilt shift tower, and it also pops out of gear with that unit. The tranny is quiet and perfectly functional except for this problem.

: What should I be checking?
