    rebuilt t56 and it shifts beutifully

    i just reinstalled my t56 that i rebuilt myself, it shifts so so so perfect. i replaced all forks, snap rings, blocker rings, syncro keys, fork pads, syncro springs, most of my bearings, cleaned up the sleeves and then replaced the slave, clutch, and flywheel. and it feels so perfect, so any body that is thinking of rebuilding your old grinding 6 speed, get a service manual and do it. oh by the way stabing it sucks but you'll get it.....and i know nobody cares but i thought i'd let all the novices know rebuilding the t56 ain't impossible

    I think i'll still leave my T-56 in the hands of T56 Rebuilds lol. Good to know stabbing it sucks though, now that I'm changing out my clutch Monday... Yippie.

    Thumbs up that sounds like good news

    i'm gonna have to tear into my t-56 soon when i bought it it had kevlar synchros, steel shift forks, b&m short throw and a centerforce dual friction. the guy worked at a gm dealership and had certified techs install the stuff and i know that stuff doesn't make daily drivin easy but sumthin is goin wrong anyway thanx for the much needed confidence
