heymulderitsme Posted July 10, 2020 Share Posted July 10, 2020 Hey y’all, Just had a good chat with my old Subaru mechanic about having a hard time shifting into 3rd gear (it grinds and is very particular about how it goes in). He suggested replacing the synchro ring, maybe for 2nd and 3rd since 2nd also gets pretty beat up under normal circumstances. Anyhow, he says it’s ideal to find a new replacement, but my research so far has suggested that may be impossible—Subaru catalogs at official parts spots don’t go back to 1983. So, I’m hoping someone out there either has a connection to some very lovely synchros or otherwise knows of a way to possibly breathe new life into this transmission. Hoping to fully restore the car and keep it forever, so I’ve got time. Thanks in advance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
