Timing gears has nothing to do with the transmission. Is it auto manual? Does it go into gear and just go in reverse or wont go into gear.. Check linkage for binding if it just wont go after putting in gear it is trans problem..good luck.

SOURCE: 96 Jetta 2.o liter has no reverse. have to put

At the botton of the gearstick is a small clip that holds your gear stick in place, I had it on my V dub. The stick will slip into reverse but work 1st. It's a small job to replace, remove all the inside gear cowling, and lift out. You will see the clip broken, just take the circlip off, lift off the broken clip, replace with a new one, it's easy. Just Remember that when you put your car in 1st, (reverse) your reversing lights come on, giving the car behind you a bit of a shock, if you are sat at lights etc! Have fun, dave

SOURCE: POSSIBLE TO convert 1973 ford F100 390 to inline 6

No not much trouble. However it depends on what Transmission you are using. If A stick, then you will need to change bell housing and you will need to use flywheel fro either a 302 V-8 or another strait 6. 300 or 240 which ever you are using will also need the hard mounts from another truck. The mounts are diferent from one with a 6 to one with a V8. Also the radiator if I remimber correctly is diferent in the way the hoses hook up. There will be a little more money to do this change. But it is easy once you make the plan and see what needs to be done. I have gone from a 300 6 to a 302 V8 in a 78 F-150. It was quite easy and i did it in a day. Any more questions ask.

SOURCE: i need the torque specs for a ford 300 inline 6

Tighten all bolts to 10 Lbs, then 20 Lbs, then 35 Lbs.
That should be fine for the 6 cylinder flywheel.

If your clutch master cylinder is good in all other gears: you can disengage and, shift the other gears with the engine not running and, you have the correct amount of clutch fluid
in your clutch master cylinder: to release the clutch:
you have a broken 5th gear syncro and, a bent fork
remove the transmission and, when you remove the shift cover you will
see the problem; you must drain the transmission case remove any metal debris; remove the gear set and, replace the syncro...the fork can probably be
re-straightened use clean, new case oil when you reassemble the transmission.

Check that the gear is actually going fully into reverse. Nothing interfering with the lever movement. Check that the extension housing is tight as gear jumping occurs from misalignment of box and not complete engagement.

Cant get timing gear off on 1986 f150 with straight 6 gears stripped need to put new one on

Removing the camshaft gear from the 6-300

Removing the crankshaft gear from the 6-300


Installing the camshaft gear on the 6-300

Installing the crankshaft gear on the 6-300


6-300 timing gear mark alignment

  1. Drain the cooling system and remove the front cover.

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Crank the engine until the timing marks on the camshaft and crankshaft gears are aligned.
  2. Use a gear puller to removal both of the timing gears.
  3. Before installing the timing gears, be sure that the key and spacer are properly installed. Align the gear key way with the key and install the gear on the camshaft. Be sure that the timing marks line up on the camshaft and the crankshaft gears and install the crankshaft gear.
  4. Install the front cover, and assemble the rest of the engine in the reverse order of disassembly. Fill the cooling system.

Is the engine light on? If not, It'probly time for an idle air control valve. Also check the motor mounts. Put the car in drive, hold the brake and give it some gas. Do the same thing in reverse. If the motor moves more than a few inches, you may have a broke motor mount.(you watch the motor, let a friend work the gas)

96 escort manual 5 speed stuck in reverse

Is the stick moving? or is it 'stuck' in the reverse position as well? There are adjustments but it seems more likely that your 'stick' has come unstuck from the gear levers that actually put the gears in the right spot. Have someone look at the transmission while you move the stick to see if the levers are moving and put your response here.
