Changing out synchros?
My truck has been rough to shift into second gear for a while, you've got to put pressure on the shifter until it feels it is time to go into gear... otherwise you've got to jam it into gear. Its starting to do the same for fourth gear as well, and getting on my nerves.
I had the truck at the shop to get some work done and they told me they think its the synchros. This is the second opinion I've had on it without actually having the transmission taken apart and checked out.
So... I want to know if anybody has changed out the synchros, and is it difficult? Can be done through the plate in the cab, without dropping the transmission? If it can't be done that way, I'm not going to play around with it -with 90,000 miles on all original parts, I'd probably get everything changed out at a shop.
