The tranny I installed from the junkyard (with all new seals, paint) feels like it has a synchro for 4th going out (or gone).

Everytime I get 4th gear, it grinds, no matter if I have the clutch in for minutes, it still grinds or ticks when going in.

Haven't cracked one of these, but I have one that grimgaunt left here and may rebuild that one, swap it in, then rebuild the one I have in the car and sell it for him?

So what's your opinion of this issue? Think it's a synchro? Your's do that?
