I saw a post a while back that mentioned a certain syncro that was really good. I think this was posted by DZAUTO. I was just wondering what these were and what the benefits of them were. I tried looking for the post but there is so many of them!

Also, anyone have any recommendations for shift forks for a muncie and where to get them?

I don't know about any special syncros, as
DZAUTO just finished talking to me about a week ago on rebuilding my muncie. He has a friend that sells complete rebuild kits, and parts.
You can go to ebay, type in "Muncie" and there are all kind of parts for auction.
Just a thought, or get ahold of DZAUTO and get his friends name and number for rebuild kits.

There is only one type of syncro being made for the Muncie now. There was two, one for the early hubs which were thicker and required a thinner syncro and the one that is available now. The later hubs which measure around 1 inch use the thicker style syncros. They are availale without purchasing of the complete rebuild kit as are all the other parts in the Muncie. Send me an email if you want just the syncros or any other part.

Wally, I think what Lil'Crazy is referring to is a special synchro/ring avail from Fischer, for worn 3rd gears. Damn if I can remember the name of it, Torque-Synchro or something like that.

i have a muncie ??? too...what's a good aluminum case muncie 3 speed out of a 69 SS worth? just curious...make an offer if you need it...or should i keep it in my car? does it make my car worth anything?(it's kinda rare) i don't have a #s matching 396 so originality isn't a big deal to me. any opinion is appreciated.

The better slider for the Muncie, ESPECIALLY if yours ocassionally jumps out of gear (such as coasting in 2nd gear), is called a Tork Loc slider. I buy these from Larry Fischer frequently. I'm at work and don't have his number but you can probably do a search and find it, plus I will post it tonight. ALWAYS tell Larry that I referred you because he gives a discount to people that tell him. Of course if you are going to the trouble to tear a Muncie down far enough to replace the sliders, go ahead and install a rebuild kit. You won't be sorry.

Thanks guys. The torque-lock sliders are what I was referring to...I swore they were syncros, but I was wrong. I have already rebuilt my M-20, but wanted this info for future use.

Actually, the slider is a component of the synchronizer assembly.
