Hello my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Can you please advise the make and hp of your engine?
Hello, sorry for the late reply i got the messages now. So in your case there are two these the one with the split pin and the one with the long shift shaft that goes to the engine block. If that is the case it needs to latch with the shaft under the carb.
Ok then the problem if i can understand you correctly what you need to do is to pull the shift shaft up by hand of by a plier and it should engage into gear and then match the upper shaft.
Ok sorry about that, inside the gear box it needs to go the slanting part facing the propeller.What i am suspecting is that either the selector pin got broken inside the gear box as that part should slide easily as in the fig in page 43 of the following link:
I suggest that you open the gearbox and check the doc clutch pin and spring.
You ll need to remove the two bolts behind the propeller and pull the shaft carrier out. from there the gears will come out.
Yes to get the gear box open you need to remove the two bolts behind the propeller and remove the carrier.You would need a puller to pull it out if it is tight and in some extreme cases heat it using a heat gun.
