I am coming to the end of my 1973 FJ40 resto-mod. I have done a 3 speed to 4 speed swap. I rebuilt the 4 speed and it seemed to go pretty well. I kept the 3 speed clutch. Everything runs great and it will shift up to 4 no problem. I can't, however, down shift without coming to a complete stop. Then, no problem - I can go into first and carry on my way. If I try to go from 3rd to 2nd without stopping - it won't happen. Any ideas? I am hoping that it is a clutch adjustment issue. I did replace the synchro rings during the rebuilt. Before I put the drift shafts back on, it would shift up and down without a problem.
