RE: 1968 camaro 4 speed conversion and transmission is hard to go into gears once car is hot
Yes, thinner. And it's only for lubricating the gears. It doesn't build pressure for them like an AUTO tranny does.
Sounds like you've got bigger problems in that tranny.
Why did the guy want to sell it? Was it worn out already. Is this what he experienced when he drove it, so that's why he sold it to you?
You always gotta ask yourself that question. Why is he selling it if it's so good?
Anyway, it's yours now and you need to get it fixed... right?
It could be that the SYNCROs are worn ... or even cracked. And that they expand in the heat causing it to bind up. I'm just guessing of course, since I'm not a transmission specialist.
Your best bet is to swing by your local Transmission shop and ask them for a rebuilding kit or some info on common problems associated with the Munci.
Sorry, I couldn't help much.
