Re: problems with t-18 updated
Did you lube the shift rods before you put the top back on? You might have some binding on them. Also, put some grease in the socket where the shifter rides. Check the shift rods and the shift forks to see if they're bent. The Hanes CJ service manual has a good write-up about the T-18, check it out.
