Ok, So I just bought my first 5.0. The car is a 1990 5.0. Has rebuilt motor and untouched trans with what looks like to be around 100,000+ miles. Has 3.73 gears and Hurst short shifter. There seems like a loud whining coming from what seems like to be the shifter...It is also only while I am accellerating...It seems to be loudest I think in 1st and 5th. Also another problem, which I am not sure if it has anything to do with it, is that once down shifting from 4th to 3rd it will not let me. I have to go from 4th to 2nd (not engaging the clutch) back up to 3rd if I wanna go from 4th to 3rd. I cannot go directly from 4th to 3rd....The whining noise is what bothers me the most though....Any help would be GREATLY appriceated. Thanks!
