Not able to shift into overdrive or reverse. Just got done putting engine and transmission back in car. Could it be a shifter issue or could I have damaged the transmission during separation?
are you there?
are you saying the shifter wont move at all?
It gets hunged up trying to go into 1st-4th and wont even shift into overdrive or reverse
the shifter itself gets hung?
Yes, not sure where it is being hunged up at. Removed the shifter to get the transmission back in with engine.
this is an automatic..right?
remove the shifter
put it in neutral first
make sure all the gates that the shifter ball sits in is in line with neutral
Gates? Those be?
this is what the end of the shifter sits into
where it gos into the transmission
Okay i believe i know what you mean
do you know that this transmission is good/
Ill try it when i get home. Not for certain. Before pulling it shifted just fine threw all gears. The motor was bad. Rebuilt it.
fact is the trans may be bad
do check the gates

Could i have placed the pins in wrong side of transmission? Shorter pin on passenger side and lo.ger on driver side
it is posible,,check that also
when you remove the shifter
use a screw driver to move one of the gates to see if it will go into reverse
Where does it say those pins go?
the pins at the shiter??
Be for the sensors.
on the side of the transmission?
why did you have them out?
Could not get harness unpluged so i took sensors off
i wouldnt think the sensors would do this
im going to send you a complete brekdown of your transmission
please give me a moment
this is allot of info
but,,it should help you find your problem
i think your problem is in the shifter
we dont really know the trans is good
this should help
DISASSEMBLED VIEWDISASSEMBLY 1. Clean the exterior of the unit with solvent. 2. Remove the clutch release bearing and shift fork.
3. Remove the 4 bolts that hold the clutch housing to the case.
4. Mount the transmission in the holding fixture J-36842. Install the transmission with its holding fixture into the holding fixture base J-3289-20 mounted on the end of a work bench.
5. Remove the drain plug from the transmission case and drain the lubricant. 6. Remove the speedometer driven gear assembly, using a 10 mm wrench to remove the clamp bolt. Pull out the sleeve/gear. 7. Position the offset lever (3) in the "3-4" neutral position. NOTE: Removal of the offset lever in a position other than "3-4" may result in driving a roll pin (1) into the detent/guide plate without releasing the lever (3) from the shift shaft. Further disassembly will be difficult it this occurs.
8. Using a 3/16-inch diameter pin punch and a hammer, remove the offset lever roll pin (1) attaching the offset lever to the shift shaft. 9. Remove the 8 bolts that hold the extension housing to the case, using a 15 mm wrench. Note that two bolts use sealer. Separate the extension housing assembly (2) from the case and shift cover. The offset lever (3) will also separate from the shift shaft.
NOTE: Do not attempt to remove the offset lever while the extension housing is still bolted to the case. The lever has a positioning lug which engages the detent/guide plate and prevents moving the lever far enough to remove it.
10. Remove the offset lever (3) from the extension housing, along with the detent ball (3) and spring (3). Remove the roll pin (1) from either the offset lever or extension housing.
11. Carefully pry the oiling funnel (4) from the rear of the counter shaft. This may be a very snug fit, and the funnel may become damaged during removal unless extreme care is used. 12. Remove the 10 bolts that hold the shift cover to the case, using a 10 mm wrench.
NOTE: Two of the shift cover bolts are also alignment dowels. Note the location of these bolts for assembly. Remove the shift cover assembly (5) from the case by sliding it sideways toward the drain plug side of the case for a distance of 1 inch. Then lift the cover straight up from the case. You may need to break the sealer bond between the cover and case before you can separate them.
13. Remove the 5-R shift lever clip (6), using a pair of needlenose pliers.
14. Remove the 5-R lever pivot bolt (7), using a T-50 bit and ratchet. Note that this bolt uses sealer.

18. Remove slip yoke seal (11) and snap ring (11) from the mainshaft.
19. Remove speedometer drive gear (11) and clip (11) by using speed drive gear puller J-38878.
20. Remove 5th driven gear snap ring.
21. Scribe alignment marks on the case and input bearing retainer and remove the four input shaft bearing retainer bolts, using a 13 mm wrench. Note the thread sealer on these bolts. Remove the input bearing retainer (12), together with the bearing outer race (12) and shim(s) (12).
22. Remove the input shaft assembly (13) from the case by rotating it until the flat surface on the clutch tooth ring on the shaft allows it to clear the counter shaft. 23. Remove these 4th gear blocking ring, mainshaft thrust bearing and race, mainshaft needle bearing (15 rollers) and spacer (14) either from the input (13) or mainshaft. 24. Push the mainshaft rearward to remove the mainshaft rear bearing outer race (15).
25. Tilt and lift the mainshaft assembly (16) from the case.
26. Remove the counter shaft rear bearing retainer by: - Bending back the lock tabs with a punch and hammer. - Removing the four bolts, using a 13 mm wrench, or T-40 bit and ratchet. - Removing the retainer (17) and shim (17) from the case.
27. Remove the roll pin (18) that holds the reverse idler shaft in the case, using a 3/16-inch diameter pin punch and a hammer.
28.Remove the reverse idler assembly by pushing the shaft rearward and out of the case. Lift the reverse idler gear (18) and O-ring (18) out of the case. Pull out reverse idle shaft (18) rearward.
29. Remove the counter shaft rear bearing outer race (19) by pushing it rearward.

30. Remove the counter shaft assembly (21) as shown in the figure from transmission case (22).INSPECTION AND REPAIR 1. Clean all parts with solvent and dry them with compressed air.
2. Inspect these parts for cracks and damaged sealing surfaces: - Case - Extension housing - Shift cover - Input bearing retainer - Counter shaft rear bearing retainer. Use a fine mill file to dress minor scratches or burrs. Replace severely damaged parts. Replace the counter shaft rear bearing retainer if the tangs are broken.
3. Look at surfaces on the above parts which support bearings and shafts. Replace parts which have excessive wear in these areas. Do not replace gears if phosphate coatings are worn.
4. Examine the bearing surfaces of the following parts: - Input shaft - Mainshaft and its gears - Counter shaft and the fifth drive gear.
- Reverse idler shaft and its gear. Replace parts which show signs of excessive wear. Do not file surfaces which have been hardened and precision ground.
5. Inspect shift mechanism parts as follows: - Look for wear on the shift shaft. - Look at the detent/guide plate and offset lever for worn edges or grooves where the detent ball and lug travel.
- Look for worn edges on these parts: - Selector arm - Interlock plate - Selector plates for the 1-2 and 3-4 shift forks
- 5-R shift lever and the rollers on the reverse fork and the 5th shift rail/fork.
- Look for worn mating surfaces on the following parts: - 1-2 shift fork, pads and synchronizer sleeve - 3-4 shift fork, pads and synchronizer sleeve - 5th shift rail/fork, pads and synchronizer sleeve - Reverse fork and the mating sleeve surface of the reverse idler gear.
6. Inspect the following bearings for excessive wear: - Crankshaft pilot bushing for the front of the input shaft - Clutch release bearing - Input shaft bearing - Mainshaft pilot bearing rollers - Mainshaft thrust bearing and its mating surfaces - Speed gear roller bearing on the mainshaft - Mainshaft rear bearing
- Counter shaft front and rear bearings. Replace any bearing and its races that show roughness.
7. Inspect the gear tooth surfaces on all the gear sets. Replace all mating gears in a set if any one has excessive wear on the meshing surfaces of its teeth. Look for fractures, pitting, scoring and spalling.
8. Disassemble the three synchronizer assemblies: - The 1-2, which has three-piece assemblies.
- The 3-4, which has sintered metal blocking rings.
- The 5-R, which uses single-piece brass blocking rings. - Examine the fit between the hub and sleeve of each synchronizer. Besides binding shift linkage, an excessively tight or loose hub-to-sleeve fit will cause what is known as a "hard shift".
- Measure the clearance between the blocking ring and the speed gear. Excessive wear on either the blocking ring or the speed gear cone surface will cause "shift blockout" or "gear clash".
BLOCKING RING TO GEAR CLEARANCE
- Look for evidence of gear clash on both the synchronizer sleeve teeth or the clutch teeth on the speed gear.
- Finally, look at the synchronizer sleeve and speed gear clutch tooth area for cause of "hopout".REASSEMBLY

i dont knw if you got all that
I might have gotten shifter wrong, but when seperating trans from engi.e. no one told me there where 9 bolts inside holdi.g the clutch to the flywheel and i pryed on the engine for a while ttilling finding those bolts.
the reason i think it is in the shift mechanism
...is because reverse and 5th is on the same shift gate/rod
Okay, well. Ill check the shifter and let you know. Thanks again tim
you are very welcome
Okay tim, I guess Ill have to throw my hands up and find a transmission. I got overdrive and reverse to work, but I lost 3 and 4. Engine sounded good, thou i have a little coolant leak with exhaust leak.
Is this all the service information of this transmission?
Got trans out, going to take it to a shop. How much should I expect?
it will shift in all gears, but very hard to overdrive.
