Question about 1995 Ford F350
Yes its worn a bit and this is normal on manual gearboxes ,now could be a gearchange problem inside the gearbox as the reverse gear is worn on the end of the teeth ,then it could be the driver over the driven shaft is worn so the layshaft is dragging or a selsector rod ,try slowing the idle down to around 600/700 rpm as this will make it easier as this monster 7litre engine should idle at around 500 with no problem ,Now remember that iam in europe and all our or 99% of motors are manual and at least 50% diesel and this grating in reverse is normal as thier is no syncromesh on this gear ,you sort of lift clutch up a bit to move the gear clusters inside the box then drop it in i do it as second nature without thinking about it One question would you still drive this motor if had to pay around 10 dollars a gallon for petrol and top band of road tax which in ireland is around 1500 euros a year and a bit less here in spain?
