I would call whoever rebuilt (or had it rebuilt) for you, and explain the situation. It sounds like an internal transmission problem to me. Bob

it could even be the shift fork as well. I didn't think reverse gear wasn't syncronized but i don't know alot about the t56 yet only the t5.

simple things during putting the mainshaft together have cause a syncro to get messed up, the inserts not properly seated, lock rings not put in right, even the syncro sleeve not put on right. too many to list
