Thanks, ***** ***** you to remove the shift linkage from the transaxle. Now manually by hand see if you can get the trans to engage every gear. If so then its not a concern in the trans, a concern with the linkage or shifter. If it will not shift then its a issue inside the trans and it will need to come back out and apart to address the shift rods inside. Can you do this and let me know the results so I can help more depending on the concern inside or outside the transaxle.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I only receive a portion of your deposit when you rate. If you do not rate or rate bad, the website keeps all of the deposit you have already paid.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.

U still there
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Did you disconnect the linkage at the transaxle and manually tried to shift into each gear.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the one linkage that doesnt have a counterweight on it doesnt move but one does
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Since the concern is in the transaxle, it will not move and while disconnected the shifter will move this means the trans needs to be removed and taken apart. Have you ever done that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
everthing was moving fine before we switched out the clutch . just the clutch disc was bad
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Once you get the trans back out, below is a link showing the shift control and rods and shift forks so you can get it apart to see what is messed up.

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris
