Question about 1985 Jeep CJ7
I have an 1985 CJ with about 200K on it. Since I had the leaking seals on the transmission replaced it has been tough to get it into first. You have to push the stick all the way forward and hold it there until it catches or the gears grind. Once it is in gear, however, it does not pop out. When you let the clutch out. This seems like it must be a linkage problem, but will take it apart tomorrow to see. Any thoughts on what else I might be looking for that could cause these symptoms?
Would prefer to be upgrading the transmission but will save that for the day when I have the time and the money to put a new engine in as well. For the time being, just want to keep this one on the road.
In your tranny u have shift forks that are attached the syncos that slide over the teeth on the side of ur gear. I think whats going on is that the little retainer sping inside ur synco in stuck not alowing the teeth to grab or the friction material is worn not alowing the first gear to slow down hope i helped u figure out the proplem.
