Have you ever put in a new guide tube? With this many miles the guide tube can develop ridges that keep the TO bearing from spinning freely, making shifting sticky.

I just installed one in my 86 with 113K and now it shifts like new. This means an engine drop, of course, but I did lots of other stuff while the engine was out. Because I needed to work inside the bell housing, I went ahead and dropped the transaxle and engine together.

Not only did my guide tube have hollows, but the contact pads on the sift fork were worn down and not contactly the TO correctly, adding to shift misery.

MY 915 gearbox synchros were just fine.
