I've done it that way before. I have a welding shop 2 doors down from my shop, and I had them fill the worn area with their MIG & then I carefully shaped the grooves in the ball area of the shifter with a cutoff disc. I polished it all smooth with emery cloth to finish the job.

The tip on the one I recently rebuilt was in pretty good shape, but that's not usually the case, just as you mentioned.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

I have seen rebuilds that included replacing transmissions and rebuilding but no step by step beginning to end with the tranny on a bench. I'm looking for something that might have each step of the tranny rebuild only with pics. Example, using the lock ring pliers to remove etc, etc, etc.

Not trying to highjack tread but have the same issue.

John, what I meant was that the brass synchro rings act as friction/braking device to bring the respective gear up to speed with the main shaft. Worn synchro rings will not by themselves cause a transmission to jump out of gear. Worn synchro teeth on the gear or shift collar? yes, they could cause a gear to jump out.

I also read that poor motor mounts and tranny mounts could cause it to jump out as well. Has anyone had past experiences with that being the problem?

Only if the are broken and the shifter is knocking on the tub from it bouncing around so much.

I just noticed the same thing. They look paper thin to me. Look at this starting at post #59

You can see the difference between new and old splines.
