T150 Shifting while removed

I have read here that when trying out a tranny to shift it through the gears. I have a T150, sitting on the garage floor, with D20 removed and I removed the shift housing to look inside. After reinstalling the shift housing, I attempted to take the tranny through its gears with no luck. Can the tranny be shifted in this mode? Or does it have to be installed. I am concerned that if I apply effort to the stick that I might force the rear bearing housing out. Any insight?

Thanks.

Take a big washer or some kind of metal and attach it to one of the bolt holes to apply pressure to the bearing housing. Thats what I did to keep it from sliding out. When second gear was gone in mine it would shift fine it just wouldn't stay in gear when you put power to it so beware.

Re: T150 Shifting while removed

I think you put the shifter back on in a different position then when you took it off. If you reach into the tranny you can manipulate the shifter syncros. There are two and each can be put in three positions UP MIDDLE and BACK put both of the syncros in the middle position then put the shift tower in neutral and install it. Watch the forks as they enter the housing to ensure they line up with the syncros. Sounds like they are not lined up correctly. Ensure this is correct before installing the tranny. After the tower is on you should be able to shift through all the gears. Rotating the input shaft with make the shifting easier. The pressure your creating by trying to shift it inpproperly is moving the rear bearing. It will move slightly on it's own during correct shifting with the transfer not attached.

Thanks for the advice. Will give the synchro alignment a try this evening, PigPen.

Re: T150 Shifting while removed

Went home, took off the top, set housing in N and had to put both front and rear synchros toward the rear; so that when I put the forks in the case I could then slide the synchro units forward. After I bolted it back up it works great. Thanks for the advice.
