Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide
While changing transmission sprocket (belt goes on it) removed shift cam and shifting forks and meshed gears in order to lock transmission in order to remove compensation assembly nut. Pair of Transmission gears are in a bind after removing nut that was on tight. How should I get out of bind.
The main drive gear (mainshaft 5th) has 2 needle bearings pressed into the inside bore. I have seen these move. If the inboard bearing drifted out a little, it may be contacting the gear next to it when the mdg relaxed after loostening that tight nut. I doubt if you can see it, with the shifter clutch blocking your view. I would go to the right side and remove the throwout bearing cover, then remove the allen screws on the trans end plate. Pound on the left side of the mainshaft with a dead blow hammer and yank the whole gearbox out and you should see the problem. A long 2 jaw puller and a little heat can be used to remove the bearing race from the left side of the mainshaft. Check to see if all the retaining rings are in their grooves between fixed gears. Check that all sliding gears slide without resistance along the shafts. You did nothing wrong locking up the gears the way you did, it is a common practice. If those needle bearings are indeed the problem, replace them, don't just drive them back in. Green Loctite on the outside of the new bearings should fix you up. If it comes to this, replace the large ball bearing the mdg rides in because it will be compromised when removing the mdg, if it wasn't already.

I would suggest that you change the gears that are binded together, This could mean it heated up and welded itself together which would mean its also warped. If you think it may still be good, spray it down with WD40 wait a few minutes and pry it apart with a bladed screw driver, If the gears are black then do no use them get replacement gears, I'm sure you could find a spare parts close by of if not order a transmission full kit from harley.
