Synchronizer

My 88 4cy 5 speed wants to pop (by pop i mean slam) out of first how hard is it to change a Synchronizer? Has any one ever done this one?

I can just take off in 2nd gear but i am guessing that will kill my clutch sooner than later.

Sorry, I didn't see this thread.
I don't think it's your sychro. If it were a synchro you would grind going into first from second. Most likely it's linkage not allowing you to shift all the way into first. do you have a lift? transfer case drop? body lift?
Taking off in second gear would wear your clutch faster.


ETA: damn, I just read your other posts. I agree, sell it and move on...

No i do not have a ;lift and you can get it into first and when you let the clutch out it goes back into neutral. If you try to hold it into gear it starts to go and POW it make a huge bang and you have to grind it back into gear and it will take off but it slams so hard it actually barks the tires.

I do enjoy this jeep but man its driving me nuts is a rebuild beyond the skill of A novice back yard mechanic?

Sounds like you got a tooth or two missing and when it gets back around to it it jumps out of gear, I had on that did the same thing and I took it apart and thats what it was.

You can diagnose the problem for sure by pulling the cover off and looking at the gears.


With a good blown up diagram of the trans, a few tools, a understanding of how a trans works and a little paintence then yes you can do it. get a video that shows you tear down and rebuild.

Oh that thing rusted off months ago!

It seriously did and i welded new nuts onto the frame and re attached it.

BTW my frame is rusted in a few places will 1/8" plate be good for patch work?

I got a quote for $350.00 to have the trans taken out and rebuilt so i guess i will be going that route.
