RJ58 Hard to Roll In Neutral

Recommended Posts

Even more great resources - thanks, Steve!


I've read a lot and watched your videos multiple times.  I'm feeling comfortable about doing this rebuild, but I still can't figure out why the neutral position isn't really "neutral" in my transmission.  Is it because a gear on the input shaft isn't fully sliding out of the way?

Really, if you are in neutral with the shifter, you are in neutral inside the transmission.  A bent or broken fork...bad bearings on the cluster gear shaft or input shaft might have something to do with it...it could be just crud in the trans.  I suspect the latter, although your trans looks pretty clean form the last guy.  :)  You need to kind of look for things like this when you take it apart.  :)
