Re: t-14 synchro and oil ? or when it rains it pours
My '75 came with a T-15 with bad synchros. Drove it that way for 6 months or so with no problems, just learn to double clutch [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].
I tried the heavy oil too, no help. The synchros on the -14 and -15 are a cone shape that the blocking ring rides on, so maybe you will be able to just replace the blocking ring. The ring is some brass alloy, while the cone/gear is steel, so I would think the ring will wear before the cone/gear. I opted for a T-18 swap, so I can't give you any direct experience on what would fix the synchros.
If you would like I can send some pics of the insides of the T-15. I also have the factory service manual for '72 in pdf format if you would like it.
