    I just got my Borg-Warner T-19 back from getting rebuilt and installed in my tow rig. Nice and quite now, gee I thought it was supposed to be noisy, but now it won't hold 4th. It goes in, but let off the throttle and it pops out. Doesen't seem to engage as deeply as 1,2,&3rd. So look in the Haynes and they list this exact problem, say to retorque tranny to bellhousing bolt and make sure clean and aligned. Did all that. HELP, supposed to be using it tommorow evening.

    That is a problem with the 3-4 synchro. The SM 465's do that with 3 rd gear quite often when they get really worn. On the synchro there are a few spring steel clips that the collar has to slide over when you change gears. These clips keep it in gear. Either this guy forgot or re-used the old ones.

    Go ream him out...

    In my opinion, I'd say you might have to re-adjust your shift stops on your shifter. I mean everthing sems to be goingfine, but with rebuild, the tolerances change compard to your old gearbox, so it jus might be as simple as adjusting the shift lever to compensate for the new stuff.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
