Call Danny,s Transmissions I Greenboro NC. 336 621 4327. I don,t know what he uses but I know he told me there is a lot of inferior stuff out there. He has rebuilt several for me and they were all very good.

The cheap syncro rings are cast, not forged. Get the better ones from Paul at www.5speeds.com  He also has the special tools if you need them. It would be best to call and speak to him directly.

Get the proper non-ferrous pilot bushing from him while you are on the phone buying those tranny parts. They are getting very hard to find in the right material. The now common (magnetic) ones you find at the parts store can make a lot of transient galling sounds on the input shaft. With the tranny in gear and the clutch pedal down it can make a growling sound that can be misdiagnosed as a bad throwout bearing.
