I've installed an LSD and replaced all the seals & bearings
in my MK1 Turbo Tranny.

Now I'm about finished and installing the 5th gear & synchro
assembly.

I'm dumbfounded as to how the synchros are engaged.
The shafts that the assembly is mounted on I'm assuming
are what move the synchro assembly into position to engage
5th gear.

My probem is that when I belive I have selected 5th gear in
with the shifter shaft, there is no movement on the 5th gear
select shaft.

This diagram shows the ends of the shaft lined up
and the 5th/reverse fork select shafts were installed
in this position.

However, there are other visual references in the FSM
that show the 5th fork shaft in other positions, and I've
studied the FSM for an answer, but still a bit confused
at this point as I've no action with this shaft when
running through the gear positions.

Before I finish it all up and install the 5th gear and end cap
I want to make sure I'm not missing anything and make
sure everything is working correctly.

So, when I select all the different gears with the shifter shaft,
this pictured shaft does not move.

What am I missing?

If I put the shift select shaft in certain positions,
I can manually click the 5th fork shaft into
one of the 3 positions. But shouldn't the shaft
be moving when I select 5th gear?

On a brighter note,
while reviewing some of DTM's posts,
I got the idea to install some stiffer springs to
freshen up the sloppy shifter. There's a place
by my work that has about a thousand, hope to
find some to freshen it up.
At least I don't have to split the case again.

Hey Jamal -Just wondering If there's anything tricky about the reassembly process about how this piece broke? Since I'm about to reassemble my own turbo transmission very soon.

Thanks

Part of the problem was that the transmission was apart for months,
so I forgot a lot of stuff how to put it back together.
Just had to rely on my notes, references & memory.

As I was tightening the 4 bolts, there was some resistance,
and I mistook that for spring tension. Anyway.....Snap!
So my advice is make sure it's seated correctly with no
resistance and in place using the 2 guide pins on the housing
before snugging up the bolts.
