Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like the shifter pawl return spring has broken on the shifter pawl shaft. Harley has had a problem with these but there is not a recall notice on it as far as I know.
The fix is a major job in that all the primary has to be pulled as well as all the guts in the transmission. The shaft will not come out with the two shafts in the transmission. But, at least the five speed transmission is designed to do this with. Much easier than the older four speed.
I do not recommend that you even start the engine until this is repaired. I've heard of the broken spring getting into the gears and doing even more damage. I've been replacing them with either Sputhe or Jim's parts.
