Hi Andy, well you have probably raised the most interesting question 
posted on this list for a long time. I'm well aware of the modification 
Austin used on the BJ8 gearbox and have even modified earlier gearbox 
parts to the BJ8 pattern,Yes the concept is to prevent the synco from 
the gear you are changing from carrying the load to the gear you are 
changing to which is a design fault in the earlier gearboxes. The pins 
are supposed to prevent the hub from pressing it backwards, but I have 
never checked if they actually do their job. You obviously have an 
inquiring mind, well done. lets see who can add to the discussion.
