Well, I will tell the tale of what has happened since my original post...I bought a used 4cyl. and 5 speed tranny out of a 93 Jeep Wrangler. I took the tranny I bought, put new bearings and synchros in it, and installed...just this morning I bled the new slave cylinder (internal), and while it was on jack stands, I went through the gears. Everything was great until I put it in Reverse. Nothing Happened!!! I then tried to go back through the gears, but it was hung between 1st and 2nd...AAAGGHHH!! I then tore the tranny down that I took out (no 5th gear), and could not find anything wrong with 5th gear or synchros. I noticed a little wear on the shifting fork on 5th gear, but nothing substantial. It might be enough, but I'm not sure. That's where I'm at, really looking forward to tearing the darn thing down again!!! I'll get to drive it one of these days, maybe... Does anyone have a AX-5 apart that could tell me the thickness of the fork ends, meaning the ends that move the slider?
