Weak syncros may not be the issue after all...

    I forgot to add I also have a lightened crank pulley which if anything should add vibrations.

    178,000 miles on the clock. When I "bought it" I was told it had been clocked and should be about 220,000. Sweet as a nut.



    Having sat in these cars on track with drivers that think light speed gear changes are "normal", I am sure there are various owners that do the same on the road. I would also suspect that since bleeding the clutch is a pain in the arse, despite what service records may show, it is not done very often and so clutch drag, people not pressing the clutch fully and many other things contribute to this.

    Is there any reasons 3rd and 4th synchros failures are so common? Don’t seem to hear about 2nd, 5th etc

    Because it is what people use the most.
