This is a picture of the B2 Motorsports “Saturday Night Special” Ford Top Loader option. Notice the differences between the fully synchronized gears (left) and the ones that have been face plated by Liberty Gears (right). When you’re only dealing with seven engagement teeth instead of a full circle of teeth, it’s much easier for the gears and synchronizers to mesh. On this particular transmission, the First/Second gears are still fully synchronized, which allows driving on the street to be much easier than with a fully face plated transmission. Nailing the Second to Third gear shift is always trickier than going from First to Second and that’s where the face plated gears come in. Just hold her on the floor, tap the clutch, and shove or yank.
