T-18 tranny problem and 304 intake gasket

i have a 78 CJ5 with a T-18 tranny. the spring loaded pin inside the tranny seems stuck halfway in. its the pin that the shifter hits when you try to shift into reverse. it makes it kinda hard to find third gear. anyways i took the shifter out and tried popping it out with a screwdriver. i was able to do this but when the shifter pushes it back in to go into reverse it gets stuck again. has anyone ever had this happen? i would have taken the top off and tried to get to it but id need a new gasket first so i can put it back together.

my second question is i have a valley pan on my 304 and an aluminum intake. my temperature sender went out on me so i went to change it. it broke in half. now i have the drill bit and a tap to make the hole again. once i have the intake off to drill it out, do i need a new valley pan? or are these reuseable? sorry if this is a stupid question but i have no clue.
thanks for all help.

Joey

sorry I can't help ya with the the tranny prob (have'nt bothered to learn that YET [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]).

Yes the 304 does have a valley pan, and its reusable. Well at least mine did when we replaced it.

good luck with the tranny, I'm just waiting for mine to go out on now.

I do not reuse those valley pan gaskets. They aren't cheap but keeping them sealed is tough enough anyway. I would replace it, and I am truly a cheap person.

Re: T-18 tranny problem and 304 intake gasket

The spring loaded pin on the T-18 is the reverse detent pin (that's what I call it). What has happened is the spring has broken or worn out. Disassemble the top and replace it. It's not real difficult but it has to come apart in a specific order so take your time and don't force it. You can get the spring directly from a Ford Dealership, your local tranny shop should have them, or call R&P 4 WD Parts Inc. at 503-557-8911. They have them in stock.Good luck. Nickmil.

Re: T-18 tranny problem and 304 intake gasket

I rebuilt my 360 a few years back, and I removed the valley pan, of course now IM told it would be better to have it in there.

but I must say I havent noticed ANY difference, its a strong healthy engine

well at least was before I put it into storage, im hoping it still IS!
