Thanks Tom.

The trans does not shift all that great, it isn't terrible but not great.

It has some sort of aftermarket shifter put in by the previous owner but i'm not sure which one it is. I did put in the revshift shifter bushings, revshift 95A motor moints and revshift 80A trans mount, which did help the shifter a bit. Those bushing made it ok rather than terrible.

Copy that. Ours was terrible new, and the shifter had so much slop in it, you could deflect it to the point you'd hit the center stack trying to get it in reverse. I did the shifter bushings, made my own mount (rigid) then installed the Pissnuoff shifter and that tightened it up...but it just plain don't want to shift. Syncros reject fast shifts and slow, slow ones. I wondered if it was just this trans or what. Thanks for posting. Killer thread!

Hmm ya unfortunatley that sounds like it might be the trans then. My shifter isn't great (a bit sloppy) but I don't have trouble putting it in gear and definietly never any trouble with slow shifts. I did have the trans rebuilt a when I bought the car because it was grinding going into reverse and on 2-1 downshifts. Since the rebuild its been fine.

The only trans (not shifter) issue I notice is shifting into third WOT at over 6000rpm it sometimes blocks me out (maybe 1/3 of the time) but I hear that is a common T-56 issue due to the design of the 3rd gear syncros not liking fast over 6000rpm shifts.
