I HAVE A B/W SUPER T-10 4 SPD. IT IS HARD TO SHIFT INTO SECOND ABOVE 6000 RPM, NO GRIND, JUST HARD TO GET IN. I PULLED IT OUT, ALL GEARS AND SYNCHRO'S LOOK GOOD. I WAS WONDERING IF SYNTHETIC GEAR OIL WOULD HELP? IF ANYONE HAS ANY SUGGESTIONS I WOULD APPRECIATE IT

This might be more of a clutch prob then a box one.
First of all,what clutch do you use?
What has been done as far as maintenance(sp) as far as linkage go lately?
482 cubes of fogger injected thunder in a 71 z.

I HAVE A HURST COMPETITION PLUS SHIFTER NEW IN SUMMER '98, I WILL BE INSTALLING THE STEEL LINKAGE BUSHINGS WHEN I PUT IT BACK IN, I HAVE A CENTERFORCE DUAL FRICTION CLUTCH ON THE WAY FROM SUMMIT, ACTUALLY, I SUSPECTMAYBE THE SHIFTER WAS HITTING THE FLOOR PAN. ANYWAY I FIGURE TAKING SOME OF THE SLOP OUT OF THE LINKAGE BY REPLACING THE PLASTIC BUSHINGS WITH STEEL WILL HELP, BUT I STILL AM THINKING OF RUNNING SYNTHETIC OIL

I FORGOT TO MENTION THE CLUTCH LINKAGE WAS ALSO NEW IN SUMMER 98. THE CAR IS DRIVEN MAYBE 2 TIMES A WEEK IN THE SUMMER, IT IS A 67 RS WITH 355, 12:1 COMPRESSION, I SHIFT AT 6800 RPM

I would agree with you that it probably is the linkage binding against the trans tunnel.
Good luck with your project.
