Any suggestions on oil wt., type or brand for the five speed manual transmission in a '93 2wd Toyota. It shifts fine on warm days but when it's cold it shifts like the synchro's are bad. Not sure what oil is in it now.
the way to go is to use a 6 cyl. trans, with a bellhousing from one of the turbo 22re's. the problem is trying to find that bellhousing. i tried to go that route, but ran out of time looking for the bellhousing, and put a stock one back in. my original was good as knew with 120,000 hard offroad miles. it only went out because i neglected a small gear oil leak, and it went empty. anaheim gear tells me they rarely have any problems with the stock unit.
I've beat the piss out of my 84 and only lost one transmission about 4 years ago (after about 200k-4 speed) swapped it for a five speed out of a celica ( all the yard had ) and have had zero problems so far. Only thing that plagues me is clutches, but I am too cheap to buy a good one so, I guess thats my fault.
