I guess I will ask now if you look where the shifter shaft goes in to the engine does it move slightly when you push or pull on the shifter lever? It won't turn very much at all but it will move slightly.


Worked on the "big rigs" for 45 years now just riding my Wing whenever I can. Gets cold in Wisconsin.

With a normal shift the shifter moves up/down approximately 1in. When the problem occurs the shifter moves only 1/4 in. then stops.
Guys I am stepping away from this for a while. Tired of working on it for now. When I get back to it I will pull the front cover and inspect. Thanks to all.
