I pulled the tranny out of my 88 toyota 4x4 r22 engine 5 speed, but i need to change the shift fork for fourth gear and i was wondering, seeing as how you cant work on it from the top if i have to split the tranny in the middle or from the front or back? if from the middle do i need to take the bell housing or transfer case off for it to split, and am i going to run into a million peices falling apart as soon a i open it up
1 drain the oil 2 remove bell housing with the release fork
, bearing and hub still attached 3 remove back up light switch 4 remove gearshift lever retainer 5 rotate the shift ro housing counterclockwise and then disconnect the rod from shift shaft 6 unbolt and remove the extension housing 7 drive out the slotted pin and seperate the shift rod, housing and spring 8 remove the front bearing retainer 9 take off both of the front counter shaft covers and the spacer 10 remove snap rings from the input and countershaft bearings 11 remove the intermediate plate 12 when removing intermediate plate, leave all gears and parts attached!! 13 remove speedo drive geer. there are two reverse restricter pins. The pins are underneath the plugs on the extention housing. 14 REMOVE THE STRAIGHT SCREW PLUG/S FROM THE SHIFT FORK/S AND WITHDRAW THE SPRING/S 15 DRIVE THE SLOTTED SPRING PIN/S OUT OF EACH FORK.
16 SLIDE THE GEAR SHIFT FORK SHAFTS BACK AND REMOVE THE FORK/S
this process is for the W series 5 speed tranny other W series trannies use similar procedures.

Re: need to change shift fork,
Transmission are kinda tricky. Yes you'll have to take the t-case off. Transmissions won't just fall apart when you break them open. But first things first. What's it doing. And if you don't really know anything about transmissions, I would give it to a shop to rebuild. Won't cost very much.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

i had the same problame in my 1989 ranger xlt 4x4 i speed shifted a trans that wasent ment to and my trans got stuck in second and wouldent come out had to take it somewhere to get the forks in the trans replaced turns out i bent the forks and it wouldent come out of second
My friend, it definitely NOT a synchronizer. Those are on the tranny shafts are brass with same teeth as the gear they're on, and are sloped to slow each gear to a stop when shifting into each gear, so rule that out. Think about it, if its stuck in 3rd, but you can still move the shifter to the other positions, then most likely it is only the shift fork on 3rd gear has somehow slipped out of its connection to the shifter rail or it's the connection is broken off. Since the shifter is on top of the trans, you can remove the console and covers to see if the shifter and cover is removable without pulling the trans to see what has gone wrong. Otherwise, you will have to pull the trans to fix that situation. Don't sweat it my friend, it could be something simple. Best of luck with the DIY friend, and may your new arrival be what you wanted. A healthy new baby.
There are any number of things internal to the tranny that could cause this. The popping out condition is caused by jamming the tranny into gear, or by failed sychronizers, gear/shaft wear, etc. Will require pulling and disassembly of the tranny to determine the exact cause.
Can;t be sure on this one except to tell you that you may have a bent or broken shift fork in the tranny. The only way to find out is to remove the shifter from the top of the tranny and see if you can see the fork and move it in and out of gear. If not the next step is to remove the tranny and take it apart. With the information you gave that is about all I can help you with unless there is more info you can give to me.
When looking for a "faster" transmission you need to check the actual individual gear ratios of each gearbox and match anticipated rpm to available peak torque of the engine. This gets a bit complicated but likely if you speak with anyone who drag races a similar vehicle they can hook you up with charts & formulas. As far as top speed goes, that's all determined by your engine and differential/tire combination as all units are 1:1 in fourth gear (fifth gear is overdrive and may give you slightly more top end) For a street car, there are far easier ways of wringing out a bit more performance.
i supose u are talking about a strait shift tranny if so the tranny ha shifter fork in it for the gears that is what is broke it is not 2500 dollars worth if someone told u that take it some where else check other prices
I've seen a similar issue on other transmissions where the shifter slips out of the slots in the shift forks, either due to shifter bushing wear or just general wear on tte trans. It can usually be remedied at least temporarily by popping the shifter top off the trans and resetting the forks all back to nuetral and then reinserting the shifter. It gets jammed when two forks are trying to engage two different gear sets.
On one of the 4x4 sites, they tell you how to replace the shifter bushings, cheap fix if you are lucky.
Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.
