T-176?

In my CJ-5 when i shift to second and third the gears grind some. I was told that it was the seconizers. It does it more often when it is cold out side or when I start it up. I checked the oil and it is full. If any one knows why it is doing this or how to fix it,it wold be a help.

It is definitely your synchros. And it does it worse when cold, because the gear oil is very thick until it warms up, making the synchros work even slower. As long as your gears are still good, it wouldn't be too expensive of a job for a tranny shop (don't use anyone like AAMCO, they will screw you over) go to a quality shop, do some research/asking around first. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

I'm having Same problem with t-150 ,I'm also losing bearing Any ways I'll be pulling it out this weekend and installing bearing & synchro kit . After calling every trans shop in town & getting quotes for anywhere from $1000 to $1600 I decided I'll just do it myself these trannys are pretty simple . Found complete parts kit for $75.33 I'll let you know how it goes .

I luckily have a guy that I have been dealing with for years, good tranny shop that has been passed down within his family over the years. Very reasonable and awesome quality.

Otherwise, I'd do what you're doing, rebuilding it myself! That's a big savings! $75 & some elbow grease vs. $1000-1600!

Finished trans job today . Wow that's one heavy unit to drop an put back in ! Input shaft bearing was gone and output bearing was carrying the load so it was shot too second gear synchro was shot . It is not a complicated job if you've got the tools and a book the hardest part is countershaft install because it has to stay loose in the case till input and main shafts are installed . If you need parts I got them From TRANSTAR in Van Nuys California ask for Lee . this company is a major manufacturer of trans parts they make parts for everybody Chances are if you buy parts from anybody they are manufactured by transtar .
Good luck
JIM
P.S. My Trans is like New, Never thought it could be so nice .
