Ford 5spd manual reverse problems

Just picked it up95 7.3, when I try to go into reverse the truck will pop it out and then grind. Is it the syncro's? I can get it in reverse when I roll the truck backwards... Every gear other than reverse is perfect.

Syncro and sliding collar. Teeth on collar are probably worn due to worn clutch pedal bushings.

Pull tranny and disassemble. Might as well do all syncros,bearings,seals while you have it apart. Not very difficult if you know what you're doing. Do need some tools to pull bearings/torch. I rebuilt my ZF with 1 new slider, all new bearings (including needle bearings and shift rail bearings), syncros and snap ring set. Had to take case halfs to Ford to pull bearing races as I had nothing I could heat the hole case with, charge $90 Total Cost $530, including the Ford bill

It's really not that bad. If you can't do it yourself, get a buddy and at least pull the trans and have it ready to be rebuilt. Ask around, see if someone rebuilds them on the side. I've rebuilt them for $200. Where are you located?

Where are you located? I've been looking for a ZF-5 to pull apart in one of my engineering classes. If you pull the tranny and deliver it to me with a kit i'll rebuild it while I'm in there. Might cost you a 30 rack of the cheap stuff.
