t5 issues

I have a T5 world class transmission out of a 90 GT Mustang and just rebuilt it. However no it is very hard to turn the input shaft by hand. I followed the manual and watched a few Youtube videos. Also the syncros do not slide very easy. What did I do wrong?

That is what I thought. I was thinking that I may have the mainshaft shimmer to tight which won't let it spin easy.
I tore it done again last night and it looks like I may have a slight syncro alignment issue also.

Bad Shoe Productions used to have some good rebuild videos online. Paul Cangialosi literally wrote the book on these (He runs 5speeds.com and Medatronics). Here is the book. http://www.amazon.com/Rebuild-Modify...tt_at_ep_dpt_1

There is also an earlier printing with a blue cover on it that would fill your needs.

If you Have a WC T5 with the tapered bearings, its very easy to over shim the gearbox as you stated.

What parts did you replace in the gearbox?

The transmission was bought used at Canfield swap meet last fall. The owner had it in a '90 5.0 Mustang bracket car and decided to go C4 to be consistant.

I just wanted to freshen it up before I did my conversion from C4 to T5 this spring.

I bought the Ford Racing T5 WC rebuild kit # FMS-7000-M (I think this is the kit number) from Summit Racing. All kit parts installed plus a new 23 T input shaft. This transmission does have the tapered bearings.

I think that I saw some of the Bad Shoe videos on Youtube.

I did buy a DVD on Ebay from ezsautomotive that a friend suggested. Haven't received it yet.

Thanks for the info.

Well went back thru the T5 several times. I came to the conclusion that my main issue was with the blocker rings. When I had the carbon fiber style installed every thing was very tight.
When I went back and installed the original blocker rings. I think they are the early style. Everything went back together with no issues.
Since I was just freshining up the transmission I reused them.
I had a local trans guy look at the internals and he said either the transmission was not abused or recently rebuilt. I lost the phone number of the guy I bought it from so I cannot verify that it was rebuilt.
thanks for evryone help and comments.

T5 slip yoke

Well got the transmission in the car finally after sorting out the internals.
I bought a Ford Racing M-4841-B slip yoke.
The issue that I have is what universal do I use. The counterhelp at two local autopart chain stores was of no help.
The T5 is replacing the C4 that was in my 70 Mustang. I was going to use the 70 driveshaft after having the driveshaft shortened.
However the T5 slip needs a wider, across the bearing caps. Has any one out there done this swap and what universal was used?
Any help would be great.

Take the yoke with you to the parts counter and ask the guy to bring out a joint for the '70 driveshaft. Compare the two, it may match. If not, they have crossover joints that will mate the two...

Thanks for your reply Russ.

I did what you suggested at a Pep Boys and Autozone over the weekend and no counterhelp had a clue of what to do.

What a shame but it is what it is.

I even emailed Summit Racing and they responded with wrong information.

So I called Ford Racing today and the person on the other end knew exactly what I wanted and he steered me in the right direction.

Ford Racing does make a conversion universal which is a cross between a 1310 and a 1330 universal. he gave me the part number and it appears that Summit Racing does handle the part.

Going to run to Summit this weekend with parts in hand just to make sure.

'Fleet Pride' also carries 1330-1310 combo U-joints. I see you're in Ohio, I don't know which states have a FP and which do not.
