Quick story to go with the question.

Long open road, 4th to 3rd to 2nd... very hard, and put it in third with lots of noise and when i took it out of 3rd gear, i now have no 3rd or 4th gear.

Physically the shifter will go in the position of 3/4 but i think the shift fork is broken and not putting the trans into the gear. Help?

Same thing happened to me. I broke part of my shift fork and also the sleeve that the fork grabs onto on the input shaft. Messy, messy, messy... I bought a reman one w/ 1500mi and now its going strong.

I had a similair problem when the metal dowel pin fell out of where the fork meets the connecting rod. The shifter went into the positions, but no gear.

Oh, so if i have another trans with no synchros, i can just take the parts from that, slap everything back together once out and i should be good to go?
