Angry !!!!!!!synchros!!!!!!!

So recently I have noticed that sometimes my second gear grinds and I have diagnosed it to be the Synchros. Only problem is that I can't find new parts for this anywhere, any advice?

I know most say just get a used trans, but i really hate risking if it even works or not.

Yep, Ford really screwed-the-pooch on SVTF parts... no trans rebuild possible, no trans parts available, no information about trans internals available... bush league, even worse than GM and Chrysler!!!

From what I've been able to gather there are differences in the bearings for one of the gear sets shafts, between the Mini and the Ford Getrags... and the ST170s still suffer from being Fords... no parts.

Why would it be different if it had the same part number or name, whatever you want to call it?

Hey Burkeboy, try these guys:

http://www.drivetrain.com/parts_cata...uild_kits.html

You'd have to call, but BigRed03 (a member here) back in 2012 was saying he was getting a tranny overhaul for his SVT with 202K miles on it from these guys. I hope they can help you out.
