Synchro Worn

This Synchro Ring came off 5th gear from an Integra Type R was down in my friends garage he runs his own gearbox specialist garage http://corkgearbox.com/ this came outa my friends Type R symtoms were hard to get into 5th gear and crunching over 5500rpm but low revs no crunch at all, couldnt get my hands on the Synchro Hub and Sleeve these lye on the boxes mainshaft and you have gears along this shaft and needle bearings also as you can see their is a tooth missing and a lot of the teeth are all heavily marked as synchro clearly worn out synchros are made of brass reason being that brass is softer than steel so when synchros wear down and all depris goes all round the box it dont damage the steel gears and eventually if he was to continue driving the car and synchro like this their is a chance that synchro ring can snap and have a lot more expensive rebuild then. Hope ye like photos for any1 that was wondering about when boxes crunch
