Guess this means you're home for the Summer already, good for you.
Aren't synchros pretty when they are new?

Well Bob,I'm not sure if I'm home for the summer or not.
Things are picking up in the western Canada oil patch so there might be a chance to work year round with regular days off.
I should find out in a week or so.
According to Paul Cangialosi,those synchros are supposed to improve shifting by engaging the next gear better.
Got some new tires too Bob;

Does that mean your car will make the trip out to where you work, kinda muddy out there.

Bought a set of 255/50x16 BFG Comp II last summer, really like them. May have to buy another set to stick in storage, good 16s are getting hard to find.

It's a shame you didn't have those synchros when you had the trans apart last year.

Bob,I wouldnt even want to think about the gas it would take to drive almost 3000 miles.
My 513 doesent get that great of fuel mileage LOL
Looking back over the last few sets of tires,I think that the Rikken Raptors were the best,but of course that size has been discontinued.
16 inch are getting harder to find all the time,the day might come when new 17 or 18 inch wheels will be on "The List".
And yes,I wish I had those new synchros at the last rebuild...
