manual tranny

97 F350 chassis cab with 5 spd manual
I bought this truck from a farmer with 62,000 miles on it. I then put it into oilfeild transportation and it's had multiple drivers, now it's got 87,000 miles.

The driver is complaining about 2nd gear grinding on the upshift. I drove it and the only trouble I had was with 3rd gear when you don't get the rpms as high as they should be. Also downshifting into 3rd grinds. I was thinking, well he said 3rd gear, he must not be counting 1st gear, a lot of poeople don't because it's so low. Turns out he actually means the second gear, I didn't drive it loaded so I started in 2nd. I'm also used to driving a big truck so just by habit I shift like a large transmission waiting for it to sicronise before I slide it into gear. So it's no problem for me.

My mechnic, who's an ex Ford mechnic and I trust him told me the sycronizers are going out and the only way to fix was a rebuild, just drive it like that and do an eventual overhaul.

The driver said he talked to somebody and he knew exactly what it was, it's a spring in the top of the transmission and it'll cost $400 to fix.

Anyone that's dealt with this problem I'd could use your help.

If it needs an overhaul I'd be interested in what kinds of prices your guys have paid for the.

The stickler is I'm selling this truck, the driver is the buyer and I'm financing it to him according to the profit that the truck makes. I don't want to spend a boat load of money on this truck but I also don't want to leave the guy with a transmission that's about to give up.
