Re: t-176 shifter problem?

you need to get the shifter back in place to get it out of gear so line it up with where reverse should be then slide the shifter back in sounds easier than it is i know... where in new york are you ??

Re: t-176 shifter problem?

thxs, I've been trying that to no avail. I did a search and saw someone had a similar problem and had to remove the shifter and use a screwdriver, just wondering exactly how he did it ? I pm'd him and waiting to here anyone else? or does anyone have a link to a diagram of a t176 that might help. i live out on the east end of long island.

I had an 80 CJ5 with a T176 in it. It did the same thing. Try using the long and thick screw driver as the stick shift and have someone gently, and carefully, rock the Jeep back and forth while you try to shift out of reverse.

Re: t-176 shifter problem?

If you can't line things up with a screwdriver, you may have to remove the top cover off the tranny and manually move the synchros and reverse sliding gear to the neutral position.
I had a similar thing happen to mine, except that it ended up in 2nd and 3rd gear at the same time - and jammed hard. I had to remove the cover and manually put it in neutral.

thxs Derek, It seems that mine is jammed that way also. Anything I should know about removing the cover, it seems to be hung up, maybe a fork or something hanging down?

What makes you think it's in 2 gears? I thought it was in reverse.

Re: t-176 shifter problem?

I got it to pop out of reverse but not allthe way back to the neutral position. with the shifter inserted i can't move it at all, even with rocking the vehicle. now it seems to be stuck between gears or something. sorry never pulled apart a manual tranny before.
