Actually, what worked best for me, run ATF in the transmission for about 100 miles. Drain, and replace with gear oil. The synchros freed right up and the transmission has been shifting great since.

Many folks swear by it. The consensus seems to be that the key ingredient is the Redline Lightweigh Shockproof - the others are mostly to improve the anti-wear properties for the front diff. Some folks report even better results with 3 quarts of RLS and top the rest off with Motul or Castrol.

Or fill it with all Rislone?

I'm a convert. it is $30 worth of tranny fluid, and you'll have to do some hunting to find it (the Redline isn't typically available just anywhere, but is the key to making it work.....), but completely worth it.
btw, for a one-stop, good deal on this stuff. check out www.grimmspeed.com
it's a local (St. Paul, MN) company that I've worked with alot (and may offer EA series parts before too long).

Also I notice that my tranny is only rated at 3.2 quarts per the general specification page. Would I need to add less of one to get it to work properly ?
