Hi Jerry,

I suspect it will make the synchros even slicker and consequently a slower
synchro action as a result.  Synthetic lubricants have that effect, that is
making the synchro action worse.

These trannies have a tendency to have the detent ball springs lose tension and
break.  Replacing the springs with those from a rib case do help some.  
the broken ones certainly helps too!

Later, Paul A
