got pics of bad sycros or specs for good ones? How can I tell if its good?

Hi I'm tearing apart a v6 contour transmission for the 4.06 gears. I want to know how to tell if the syncros are in good shape? Pictures would be awesome. I try to get pics of the syncros so you guys can see them. Does the blocker actually have to be broken or show alot of wear to be bad or could it be hard to distinguish a bad one from a good one. If the double blocker v6 ones are good I would rather use those also I would save some money for other upgrades. They don't look like they have any wear.

Would it look like the ones on this page if they were bad?

Heres some pics including the diff. I believe this billet diff is stronger than the focus one so I will use this one if I can ever get it off.

Are any of the syncros interchangeable?

heres some more that I found showing that if the blocker and syncro are too close they are worn
http://www.film.queensu.ca/CJ3B/Tech/T90.html

My syncros actually look good and sharp, its the blocker that looks bad on third.
Can I just replace the blocker?
