738 broadmoor transmission - stuck?

Recommended Posts

rickpilgrim

While blowing snow today it seems the trans locked itself in second gear and will not shift out. We have fresh 80w-90 in it and always shifted smoothly before.. Is there an easy way to fix this or are we better off with a different trans?

Thanks everyone!

Rick,

Do a search for a topic on the "bent screwdriver trick" on here, I don't have the link handy but it is easy to fix. I have found that when I shift, I am very deliberate in my shifting, and don't pull against the gates (straight to the center, straight up or down, straight into gear) and I haven't stuck one in years. Also, I think there are youtube videos by zippovarga showing how to fix this as well.

Steve
