howdy guys, hows things?

Well, me 80 series Cruiser Syncro's on 2nd gear are not in a good way, so thinking about is there a cost effective new syncro kit that you can do yourself ??

other thoughts?

Cheers...

Hi Ro

Have you tried a different oil. I had problems with my Series 80 syncro a few years ago and on advice from this site changed to VMXM.
Definately worked for me.

Cheers

Howard

I'll second what Rowan has said. Don't fix anything until you've tried Castrol VMX-M gear oil.

I switched to it
- i think its better but changing down can still only be done by double clutch

I can't remember which year, but the 80series synchros were upgraded from double synchros to triple - might have been in 1992.

hi
i have tryed castrol vxm-m and is does help
but i now use tractor hydraulic transmission oil and it beats vxm hands down for smooth shifting
try it you guys will be amazed at the smooth shifting compared to vxm

you have to buy it in a 20ltr drum and its not cheap like vxm

fuel oil depots is the best place to buy it but worth the extra

tractor dealers will add there sting to the price or you may happen to know a friendly farmerwho buys it in a 200ltr drum

cheers ,
change in a very smooth manner in the future with tractor trans oil

howdy Mazcan...

Cheers for your post, much appreciated.

I have tried VXM-M with Nulon additive & it certainly helped but still fussy, so keen to try your idea.

Is the oil your talking of castrol Agri MP plus? or can you give me the exact name at all?

Cheers again

Ro

hi rowen
the oil i used was
titan which is made by fuchs /aust and its---- utto/1206---
universal tractor transmission oil for agricultural and industrial machinery
any tractor trans/hydraulic oil for simular use would do
its the hydraulic lubicity qualitity that makes the difference imho
when you compare the feel of it to the other that you were using you will notice thats its much slipryer
as i think i mentioned before you will probably have to buy 20ltrs

i have no doubt you will feel the difference when changing gears
if not well your g/box is past it
cheers

Mobil Agri fluid, designed for transmissions that share wet clutches in farm machinery. I used it in my hilux and it was great but in the cruiser this time i tried Transmax Z seems to work OK as well.
