Well guys my trans started making a noise. Seems to be the tob. Noticed that when i un hooked the cable from the clutch fork the fork hits the bell housing and the tob always has a small amount of pressure on the fingers. So im guessing i need to get an adjustable pivot ball. Also i jacked up my rear end and my tires would spin alittle when i put it in 1st gear with the clutch disengaged. Im guessing since everything was not adjusted correctly by the previous owner, maybe caused premature wear on the diaphram fingers causing it to not disengage fully. I will be replacing the tob,pilot bearing and pivot ball and see if that fixes my issue of high rpm shifting notchiness.

I didn't think the T56 seemed any notchier than a T45.
My T45 on my 100xxx mile 99GT with Centerforce dual friction clutch is way smother shifting than my T56 with 40xxx miles, Twin disc RXT, McLeod adjustable pivot ball, anti venom mod, 26 spline, and every miracle fluid, RP, Amsoil, DexIII, etc...

Any update? Did you replace the TOB, pilot bearing and pivot ball? And did that resolve your issue?

My t-56 feels like a t-5 compared to the tko -600 I came from in the fox lol

I recently switched to the comfort handle for my MGW. It almost feels too easy to shift. I have the anti-venom mod done as well. I will say it's nice not having to stretch for 3rd and 5th.

Keeping the clutch cable a little on the loose side takes away some of the "nochiness". Adjusting the clutch pedal catch height to the bottom helps too. RXTs tend to catch high and it's not a big enough deal to get the pedal mod for me.
