Is this statement based on direct observation, or anecdotal information? I've been rebuilding transmissions for a shop off and on for 3 years, and a dragging and improperly adjusted clutch is the #1 reason we see worn synchros, followed by bearing failures due to inadequate lubrication. And I've never seen a bent shift fork, only broken ones.
