Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone

1 Answer

Harley Transmission After rebuilding the transmission, 1500 miles later, 4th gear came loose. It put a hole in the casing the size of a 50 cent piece. All gears are brand new & the work was done by a harley mechanic. Can you tell me what could have happened? Part of the gear was chewed off & the main shaft was bent.

W hat do i do with problem with gears in mitsubishi rvr 1995 diesel a couple of days ago couldnt get 5th gear now i can get 5th again and cant get 4th

The first thing I would do is make sure the clutch is working a leaking slave or master cylinder would give you problems with 5th gear and reverse possibly 4th depending on the transmission .
If the clutch pedal is engaging off the floor you likely have a problem with it .With a hydraulic system the higher grabs the better the disk is .Also if fluid is leaking out then air is getting into the system .
Try having the clutch bleed .
The transmissions last a long time 3 to 4 hundred thousand miles if the oil is changed every 3 to 4 years .
However they are extremely complex to rebuild and hard to get parts for unless you know some people .
So bleed the clutch then drain the transmission oil see how much comes out should be at least a qt .and half also look at the pieces of metal small stuff is OK but large pieces like gears and clips are not.

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear

If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

Transmission solenoid

I think that you have been getting the "bums rush" from the transmission rebuilder.. There is always oil in the gears as there is oil continuously being splashed around so burning gears is out unless you have a band /clutch slipping problem. Always run the fault codes to see if there are electronic problems and have a pressure test done to check for internal mechanical problems I advise that you find an accredited auto transmission shop that repairs your transmission and get a second opinion before you spend another dollar.

My 1990 fxr vibrates in 4th and 5 th gears

Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem/ flywheel shift runout should be .003" max.
8. Broken frame
Good luck

Noise from Manual Transmission

Bad bearings in gear shaft. Requires transmission rebuild or replacement. If only 15,000 miles, it should be under warranty.

2003 Electra Glide Classic. Very whiney in 4th gear. After several miles it was also in 5th gear. Now whining in almost all gears after 1000 miles. Seems to be getting worse. Lube on check stick seems...

Drain the oil and refill with 18 ounces of fresh oil mixed with 6 ounces of Lucas gear lube and see if that helps. If a transmission is whining, not a lot you can do except rebuild it. Are you sure it's the transmission and not the final drive belt. If the final drive belt is loose, it will rise up and rub on the bottom of the inner primary when you let off on the gas and make a whining noise.

Transmission issue, when in reverse heard a clunk, then a whining sound....later there was no reverse...2001 chevy blazer I had the exact same thing happen just today on a 2000 Chevy Blazer. Two weeks...

The loss of 2nd 4th and reverse is a common failure on the 4L60E. What happens is the reaction shell has separated from the sun gear. Often a whole transmission is cheaper simply because the remanufactured unit from GM are reasonably priced and the warranty is 3yr 100,000 miles.
