I bought several of the fiber-lined brass 1-4 gear syncros or blockers for our 5 speeds as the carbon fiber lined have become impossible to find anymore. Grab these if you own a 5 speed the brass ones available now tend to grind in speed shifting as you can see by searching these posts. $50 for one or two or $45 each for several shipped to continental US. Paypal, check or money order. If paypal please add 3% (what Paypal charges me).

Been a bit nicer if you hadn't stated what you bought them for in the other thread. Someone will pay it though. GL.

I suppose you're right but does it really matter? If you want carbon fiber lined syncros I have them and you don't have to spend three days like I did and hours on the phone calling around the country. That's if there are any others out there that is...capitalism is a good thing.

Agreed and instead of stating where they were at for others could purchase them for $22 you purchased all of them. It's great having club members that care!! Freedom of speech is awesome as well!!

Actually you might reread the post I bought them for $29 each and paid tax so they were $32 each. Since I am paying shipping someone who buys 3 or more is getting a fine deal. You are welcome to exercise your free speech but you might be more careful on your use of facts in running your head...

How many of these do we need for one transmission?

There are four identical (these syncros) for 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, and 4-5. You need a different syncro for reverse (need not be carbon lined). Some folks only redo the syncros that are bad (typically 1-2 and 2-3) if you want to do them all while the tranny is disassembled you need four of this type I have...to be clear you can get plain brass blockers now for about $33 each they are the same in these gears as the Ford trucks that share our tranny (but with different gear ratios for the truck). These, according to board members, are better for our cars in speed shifting.

Are these really better than the brass blockers for racing? I have the brass blockers in my tranny now and sometimes have a problem shifting quick with these. They sometime grind when shifting into third. I would have to drop RPM's to get into third. Does anyone have any input on this here?

thanks

Mike I have the same issue with factory Ford fiberlined syncros. I grind third sometimes if I am not careful.

And I have the carbon fiber ones, and I still sometimes grind third as well-it's just two big of an RPM drop for a single blocker to do quickly.

Can you keep your foot to the floor or do you have to drop RPM's to go into third?

Mike

Sorry don't mean to change thread. I'd be interested in these syncros if it would make a difference

Interesting discussion perhaps should be moved to its own thread in the technical section? I've still got a few sets of these left four sets have been sold.

I dont try speedshifting the trans. It grinds it if I shift it too fast though.

i don't know what your engine combo is but it might help to spin it higher in second a little more

I'm shifting at 6200 now how much higher you think I should go? :D
I had misunderstood and didn't realize I have Southern gear CF blockers, now I'm looking into changing the fluid in there to see if that makes a difference.
Hope that does the trick.
