There are no "synchros" in these boxes. The RR sliders are back cut on both edges so you can decelerate and not kick out of gear. The standard sliders are only cut on the upshift side and thus will not hold a load while decelerating. As Nate said, occasional dressing/replacement will be required so these are prolly not a good choice for a daily driver...

AutoGear Please know that after awhile you will have to disassemble your gearbox, and clean up the dog rings with a file to remove the burr that will develop. Eventually you'll have to replace the faceplate/ dogrings all together.

Yes I agree. I was just concerned that the clunk when going into gears was not the norm. After listening to the videos, I can hear it in all of them.

Thats what I figured. i can get it to make almost zero clunk if I let the rpms drop between shifts. But i can tell you when you get on it, it almost wants to shift itself.

Dajerseyrat Anyone ever drive a Jerico Transmission? Im just curious if they are supposed to be noisy as hell...Loud noticeable "clunks" as it goes into gear when cruising and a PITA to downshift... Im guessing it needs to be rev matched.. When I did go WOT and do a 3 gear hit, it does feel like butter..It likes to be driven HARD I assume..

vinniekq2 get a foot on the clutch pedal and you can use more pressure.open the valve only slightly and watch it come out fast and clear

I was using a vacuum pump..I wasnt pressing the clutch.

Yeah i get a steady flow of fluid but bubbles in between, I cant see how there is THAT much air in the system..I hade to top off the reservoir 2 times already. Ill keep at it, but Im thinking air is getting back in when I remove the hose from the nipple to lock the bleeder valve.
