RE: [T3] problem downshifting


Why not?  I do this in all my cars (2 being air-cooled) and never have
experienced problems that I know of.  In fact, I would rather engine-brake
so if I need to get moving again I'm able to do so, quickly if need be.

Sounds to me like the synchro is out in his tranny and it needs a rebuild.
