I ordered a new shifter today from Novak. Hopefully that fixes the shifting gears issue.

What is the shifter plate?

jon6.0 a little purple power on that engine and it'll look brand new! Nice catch on the dump. Man, I could use one of those about once a week!!

yeah, we use it a lot around here. Its a grrreat degreaser/cleaner. Just don't get it on your hands as it will take all the oil out of your skin and you'll grow some new!!
Or you could use Simple Greeen, its a little more friendly.

I call it the shifter plate. Don't know correct term. I mean the whole top piece that unbolts. It houses the shifter & the shift fork inside. I did this on an SM465 which is basically the same tranny. The rod on the spring that keeps the shifter in the 1-2 side was wallowed out & would stick, not allowing the shifter to push over to the 3-4 side. It had over 300k on it though. The synchros were still good. If your grinding going into gears but can still shift OK, than it might be the synchros (assuming clutch is good). Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Hmmm. I'll start off replacing the shifter and drilling and tapping it for cap screws. If that doesn't work I'll know what to tear into next. Although I'm starting to think the grinding sound coming from the motor is actually just being ampified through the bellhousing from the clutch/transmission.
