It's supposed to be synthetic mercon, not sure if it makes a difference or not. The ZF uses friction cone syncros, so once they wear down, they're shot. A syncro kit is around $400.

so here's the latest with my trucks ZF5. so i changed the oil today to amsoil full synthetic and guess what same thing is still going on. so now i am to the conclusion that it needs a rebuild i am going to take it to a tranny shop this week to get a second opinion it, also alberta7.3 do you have a site or a number that i can get to price out a rebuild kit. is that a total rebuild in parts. also since they will have my tranny out I'm going to replace the clutch. what company should i go with would like to here is people opion on the differnt makers such as luk, south bend, centerforce, valair, etc thank you guys for all of you advise.
