hi i removed the synro hub and flipped it over due to fifth gear popping out (found dog teeth worn) now my issue is which synro ring is for reverse. the ring thats with has the 3 even spaced cut outs or the full one thanks shane
it should be hard to move if its in the wrong way. BTW if your "dog teeth" are even a little rounded on the gear it will probably not change just by flipping the synchro. I took mine off and machined(I use this term very loosely as it was more like grinding or hacking) the "dog teeth" the opposite direction with a die grinder and a conical shaped carbide bit. Now, much to my amazement, 5th gear actually works normally. I am a little hesitant to try to put any real power through it though.
