My reverse synchro was trashed on one side but the other side is perfect. Reverse is the first gear shown in the video. Teeth are very round. Anybody run them without issue? Damn T-56 parts are pricey.

It was sitting for a while. Had some some chocolate milk inside and smelled really bad. I was told it was a good shifting transmission but we all know what that probably means. Can the gear still be usable even if the synchro is shot? Going to post a better pic of R gear.

Before tremec raised their prices, I sold dozens of t56 reverse gears a week. I would replace the reverse synchro and mainshaft gear. There are off-shore reverse gears that are adequate for a daily driver type build.
Talk to Jay over at All Trans Parts in Greenville SC (864) 297-9913. Tell him Nate from Auto Gear sent you.

Someone has been doing J turns.

It is way to easy to overpower the stock T56. I always tear up the syncros, sliders, round out the gears and just wear that pos out from stock spirited driving.

Then you need to stage it up. Stage 2 or stage 3 parts turning a camaro junk t56 into a 6060 magnum. Good for around 450-500 ft lbs of spirited driving with a 10k clutch. If you drive expecting a clutch to last 30k then the thing may survive up to 600ft lbs.

More then that you get into stage 3 stuff.

Depending on what your power level is and how you drive you may be good using those gears with a new set of synchros.

If your doing spirited driving and things like j turns then you might want to consider a stage 2 upgrade.

Every basic T56 rebuild in a shop that knows their stuff? It gets a new 1386-088-003 reverse gear and the 1386-590-004 reverse synchro assembly. When the gears were 80-something dollars retail? We sold pallets of them.
