Rebuilding a Transmission

I am seriously thinking about rebuilding the Warner T-5 trans next month because the 5th gear synchro is worn out [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] (sometimes it takes a few tries to get in 5th gear).

Since I am going to replace the clutch at that time anyway, the trans will already be out, and I figure I can knock out both. I found a rebuilt kit with all the 'wearable' parts for ~$120.

My question is: How difficult is it to do this job? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Thanks in advance....

Re: Rebuilding a Transmission

Its not too bad, just get yourself an exploded view of the transmission from somewhere. I plan on doing the same on my 85. My reverse synchro is completely gone now! Grind, grind grind! I'm pretty sure you can upgrade it to World-Class
T-5 specs and it'll last longer. It has heavier synchro rings, etc. If I look I may still have the exploded view and some of the specs. Yesterday mine wouldn't shift into any gear at all even after warming up. I suspect someone put some 90weight in it to mask the synchro problem. Doesn't work well when its 20 degrees out and the trans is designed for ATF! If I find the info, I'll e-mail it to you. BTW, where did you find the wearable parts?
