Thanks for the photos. I did my gears so long ago (1969) there was no internet, and no digital cameras to post with. Well, I was using ArpaNet just a little later, which did grow up, but you had to be in a few special places to have access.

Great pics!! BTW - I made the changes without removing the 1st dog gear with its notch. Still working fine, notch and all almost 40 years later. The TX does have the slightest rattle at idle in neutral.....

Swapping dog gears is still a great move, especially for the worn 2nd gear dogs. I suspect all these years later that the very large rotating mass was just a bit too much for the syncro. 1st probably would wear too except that we don't use it very much. The lightened gears probably would help keep this wear down too.
