The issue here is likely related to the "linkage". Linkage is the parts (often a cable or metal rods) that connect the shifter to the actual part(s) inside the snowblower that need to physically move to change speed and direction of the machine.

You'll need to carefully inspect the entire linkage to locate missing or worn cotter pins, bolts, etc. You may need to open the underside on the snowblower to inspect and access the entire linkage. These are typical parts that are used to keep the linkage connected to the shift handle and internal wheel assembly. The linkage isn't usually complex - often a pin or threaded portion that passes thru a hole in an assembly - that is held in place with a cotter pin, bolt, etc. Simply move the shifter so that the linkage can be secured properly and you should be "good to go".

Good luck!

I have a 1987 Nissan Hard-body V6 4-Wheel drive with a manual transmission. My gear shifter will only go into 1st, 3rd & 5th gears. It will not go into 2nd, 4th or Reverse. It acts like it is


Sound like the syncros have worn out. Have you tried rowing down the gears starting in 5th, 4th etc at a stop with th clutch pushed in? How many miles on the current clutch?

Gear shifter cable


sounds like a stretched gear shift cable or the linkage on the tranny may need some adjusting i would start with the linkage first jack vehicle up and do a visual while some one goes through the gears make sure to use jack stands so that the power wheels are off the ground.....good luck

95 chevy 4x4 shifter light will not come on rpm gauge work speedometer will not work and stuck in 4th gear


Wow.. I'm a little confused.. is the shift indicator stuck in 4th or is the truck stuck in 4th gear? the neutral safety switch can cause some of them symptoms,but it sounds like you have some bigger problems.. transmission, transfer case or wiring. If you want to clarify those symptoms i might be able to be a better help.

I have 1990 accord lx 5speed that is stuck in 4th gear but the shifter moves in all gears..To get home I had to ride the clutch in 4th all the way home..Checked the links from shifter to trans everything...


Do you still feel the same feedback from gear lever when you change gear or it appear loose? It looks like a gearbox problem, maybe due to low gearbox oil something has broken inside the gearbox.

Shifter is stuck in 4th gear and wont come out. I was having problems getting in some gears at first and then it was getting stuck in 4th but would come out, now it stuck and wont come out.


Will it come out of gear with the engine shut off? When you were having trouble getting it into gear was it with the engine running? If you answered yes to either, or both questions then you likely have a clutch problem; faulty clutch assembly or slave and/or master cylinder. If the problem occured with the engine off then you have internal transmission trouble.

Revtech 5 speed tranny. Transmision some times will get stuck in inbtween 5th gear and 4th gear, I would have to try and shift up and down from 5th to 4th, 4th to 5th and some times it would shift down on...


Sounds more like a shifter pawl problem. I'm not familiar with the RevTech tranny but it should be very similar to the original H-D tranny. The shifter pawl has to be adjusted so that it's got equal travel in both directions. If you're trying to adjust it. Put the tranny in neutral. Now lift the shifter lever until you feel the pawl engage the pin in the shifter drum. Then go back to the middle of the movement range and depress the shift lever until you feel the pawl contact the other pin. The lever should move about the same distance in each direction. If not, the shifter pawl needs to be adjusted. On some bikes, it take some special tools to be able to get to the adjuster. The adjuster is on the left side just in front of the lever that connects to the shifter pawl shaft sticking out of the transmission.

Gear shifting is too tight


Hi, Nirmal_nettu and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch dragging slightly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. Shifter forks sprung.
7. Transmission oil too heavy.

Clucth not disengauging....


try this.you have 2 shifter cables.one is select cable the other is shift cable.first put the transmission selector lever in neutral.then move transmission shift lever to 4th gear.depress clutch to if necessary to shift.move the shift lever to the 4th gear position until contacts stop.then you turn the adjuster turn buckle so the shift cable eye aligns with the eye in the gear shift lever.when installing the cable eye. make sure the flange side of plastic bushing at the shift cable end is on the cotter pin side.the cables should be adjusted so the clearance between the shift lever and both stoppers are equal when the shift lever is moved to 3rd and 4th gear. move the shift lever to each position and check that the shifting is smooth.
