Gears stuck in 1st...on my ford 91 econoline 150 why also it started after I change the flywheel

When you say it is stuck in first, does that mean you can not shift into reverse or park, or that it won't shift higher than first ?
Is it possible the shift linkage is out of adjustment ?

150 johnson wont idle wot great

start engine while in water with slightly high tickover , remove throttle cable and find throttle stop screw and adjust till 800rpm holding the throttle arm against the stop and see if you can select forward gear without stalling ! depends what size pitch prop your using as you mite need tickover slightly higher but as long as it selects without stalling then ok ! as long as it doesnt jump forward , in gear should be 800rpm + or - 100 max ! if still stalling then possible requires fuel system cleaning !

I own a 1986 Dodge D-150 w/ and automatic transmission and when I shift the needle doesn't line up with the correct gear. I've tried adjusting the needle but it still won't line up.

We have very little reverse any thing above idle the prop just seams to slip 76 johnson 85 hp outboard thanks Ben

There are two things to look for. With the motor off disconnect the shift cable. Pull the boots off the plugs so the engine can't kick back. Grab the shift lever directly on the motor and pull it in the direction reverse is. Turn the prop and you should be able to feel reverse click in. If you just barely feel it "tick" the gears, the shift rod inside the housing is not adjusted. If the reverse "bites" into place as good as forward then leave it is that position. Next, line up the shift cable but DO NOT connect the end with the shift lever. Put the cable in reverse and you will see a gap from the old setting to the where it has to be to work correctly. Then its as simply as adjusting the shift cable to match the lever.
The second possibility is the rubber hub in the prop. It could be slipping. But usually its gone in both directions when this part breaks.

1990 f150 transmission up shift to early

Sounds like the passing gear cable is out of adjustment. Get a shop manual and see what the specs are on how to adjust it properly. It is a pretty simple fix.
