The synchro blocker ring may be worn out too. A person would just have to tear it down & have a look. The shifter detents in the tower should also be checked since they do aid in holding it in gear as long as everything else is good to go.
Thanks for the response rotorwrench. Sounds the shifter dedents play a minor role. Can that be done on top or even worth checking?
