B10 gets stuck in 2nd

Recommended Posts


I've used the bent screw driver method to put shift forks in proper position many times and now have a broken axle shaft tube,so case needs to be split.What actually wears out causing shift fork problem so it can be corrected when I go in?Any suggestions greatly welcome.

Go to page 26 of the attached:


Items R & S are detent ball & springs that are supposed to ride on shafts L & M . They are supposed to line in neutral so you use either fork , item Q. Sometimes the spring weakens and doesn't hold the fork and that will block you from any shifting. That what I found a long time ago on a similar transmission.

Disassembled transmission found a snap ring missing on a shift shaft possibly allowing excessive fork travel along with weak springs hopefully an easy repair.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
