SOURCE: gear box oil leak

Here is a website where a manual for you outboard may be purchased.  Outboard Marine went out of buisness in 2000 and thus no parts of origial manufacture are support is available . Therir are secondary markets .    THe Lower case splits in half and their is a seal around the prop shiftm which is pressed in. The seal between the cases are cut o-rings which are placed and glued into place with gasket seal.
The water pump is located where the case splits a little bit higher. You must open the little port on the side and take out one of the screws to the connecting shift linkage to split the case. After splitting the case the drive shaft and water pickup tube(s) wil come out of the powwer head or the tubs may stick into the power head which is ok. Place the lower skag into a vice and remove the 4 or 5 screws to the water pump housing. Remove and replace impellor and impellor plate if available. If part(pieces) of the rubber impellor is missing flush out the tubes and the power head to remove them.   When reinstalling the lower unit use a flash light to make sure that the tubes return  to the proper place in the power head and the shift lever is resecured. If you need more assistance, just write back. I was an Outboard motor mechanic for five years about the time of your motor.

SOURCE: won't shift into gear plymouth voyager

Hi the Transmission control module is having communication issues with the sitting solenoids that actually preform the shifting once you initiate it by using the in car stick. these solenoids are inside of the transmission pan and you will need to replace them.

Please rate and god bless:)

Depending on the year motor, make sure the throttle is in the neutral position, drop the lower unit and the motor foot should come off, will probably take some wiggling and with the age of the motor, possibly a few light taps around the cavitation plate with a mallet would be helpful.

SOURCE: Trans hard to shift into neutral

One of two things is the problem, with one thing being a low cost to try and one thing being a high cost to repair. The low cost thing is the oil. I am assuming the oil hasn't been changed in a long time. Dirty and gritty oil can inhibit shifting. Change the gearbox oil and install a new oil filter. Use 10w40 motor oil and stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Avoid any special additives in the oil and do not use synthetics. The filter is at the front of the bottom casing. Ride the bike for 50 miles. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil ( and preferably another new oil filter ). This will flush out the dirt and grit in the engine.

If that does not solve the problem then you have a bent shift fork. The repair is major surgery on the engine. The engine gets removed from the frame then the bottom casing is removed to gain access to the gears. Then the gears and shafts are removed to gain access to the shift drum and shift forks. This is not a job for the novice mechanic.

Now would be a good time to have the shop do a tune-up on the bike. They should check and set the valves. Install new spark plugs and air filter, set the ignition timing and check the CDI for proper operation. They should also clean, syncronize and balance the carbs. Sync and balance them at least. Cleaning can be expensive and my general rule is " if is ain't broke, don't fix it ". By he way, don't try the sync and balance yourself. You will likely wind up taking it back to the dealer asking why it won't start and run good. Oh, and why is the engine backfiring?.

I hope I have not been too long in my solution and also that a bent shift fork is not the problem. Best wishes.

Please top rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

I need 2,3 & 4 gear for Yamaha 1100 special 1982 model


Instructions
    • 1 The gears on a motorcycle run in this order: first, neutral, second, third, fourth and fifth. When you are moving, shifting up from first gear will skip over neutral and shift you right into second gear. The only time that shifting up from first will get you into neutral is when you are not moving.
    • 2 Pull in the clutch lever and tap the gear lever down until it stops. This will signify first gear. Pressing the gear lever down will shift you down one step and pressing it up will shift up one step.
    • 3 Tap the gear lever up one click while still holding in the clutch. This will put the bike into neutral.
    • 4 Start the bike. The bike needs to be in neutral to start.
    • 5 Hold in the clutch lever and tap the shifting lever down to shift to first gear.
    • 6 Release the clutch slowly and give it just enough gas to get moving.
    • 7 Listen to the motor to know when you need to shift. If the engine is making a low grumbling noise, then it will need to be shifted down. If it is making a high squealing noise, then it needs to be shifted up.

I have a Evinrude Ficht 135 that Runs Ok but won't go in to gear, forward or reverse. Any ideas?


Disconnect the shift cable and see if the problem is with the shift box or the lower unit. If the lower, remove the bottom plug and look for water or metal where there should be clean oil.

If the shift box, take to the marina- they were a bear. Even just for cables.

So I have a 01 zx9 and the neutral light won't shut off. It will shift iinto all gears while I riding but will only go into 1st and neutral while I'm stopped. I know at times while I'm riding i have issues...


neutral light stays on ( grounded neutral wire / bad neutrl switch.
shifting problems
1. gear shift return spring weak or broken not a lowing the shift lever to to return to its neutral position to grab the next gear selector.
2. Oxidation on shift shaft and case preventing free movement of the shift shaft to return to the neutral position.
3. Clutch adjustment

Stick shift


Hi:
The shift pattern is pretty much the same on all 5 speed cars. The top row is the odd numbers, 1-3-5
the bottom row is 2-4-Reverse. The center position is neutral

Here is the key: The shifter is slightly spring-loaded to the center position. If you hold in the clutch pedal and pull the shifter to neutral, and let go of it, it will automatically be lined up in the position, that if you pushed it forward , it would go to 3rd gear, and if you pulled it back, it would go into 4th gear.
This way, to start driving, you start out in neutral, grab the shifter lightly, and push it first to the left, then forward. This is first gear, where you start out. when you want to shift to second, push in the clutch, and keeping left pressure on the shifter, pull all the way back . Here is the easy part, 2nd to 3rd. When you are ready, push in the clutch, and just push the gear shift forward , till it hits neutral, and is spring loaded to the middle. Then you just push it straight forward to 3rd, then next shift, straight back to 4th.
Last gear, 5th: push forward to the neutral row, then Push to the right till it lines up ,and forward to the 5th gear. Reverse should only be shifted into from a dead stop. Find neutral, push the shifter all the way right, then pull back towards you. Hope this helps.
Practice a bunch in the driveway!

50hp force that jumps in an out of gear


I need year model to be precise? But here are the basic tools and troubleshooting steps. TOOL (1) a black marker.(2) a tape measure (3) a second person. TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS(1) the force need water so put it in the lake or install water hose.(2) do not start engine yet. remove engine cover and find shift cable by shifting remote control. once you find were the shift cable connects to the shift linkage. learn which way is forward and reverse. is it push or pull by the cable. remove the cable.(3) now the shift mechanism is removed from the boat controls. this test will require you shifting the shift linkage by hand so stay clear of the flywheel and all moving parts. (4) start engine. at idle speed and you in a safe location near the shift linkage shift engine into forward gear by the shift linkage. be aware how far you need to move the linkage before it shifts into forward. Mark that location with the maker somewhere you can see.(5) shift the linkage back to neutral. mark location were neutral begins. you will fill it click out of the forward gear.(6)now shift into reverse gear marking that location.(7) shift it to neutral making that location as you fill it leave the gear(8) shut off engine turn off water or take it out of lake (9) look at you marks and measure the distance between neutral and forward. the measure the distance between neutral and reverse(9) the second person needs to be in the boat to work the remote control. you need to be at the engine with the tape measure. person #2 needs to make sure remote control is in neutral. you need to measure the remote control cable end so you get a measurment with it in neutral. make a note of the neutral lenght.(10) person #2 shift remote control into forward gear. you measure cable end for distance traveled to go to forward.(11) make the measurement for reverse same way.(12) this is how you find out if you clutch dog is to wore out to stay in gear by the travel of the shift linkage compared to the travel of the shift cable. There are adjustments but they only go so far. that means you will have to sacrifice one gear for the other to make up for the distance of travel.

While shifting from 4x4 to 4x2 the gear lever is jammed at neutral position & jeep is not moving


there are no syncros in the transfer case, that would ease in shifting. i would try putting it in gear with the transmission, this will reposition the gears in the transfer case. then back to park or neutral. now try shifting to 4x2.
