Transmission woes


Recommended Posts

It's a 11/71 Z with the original 4 speed. Very difficult to get into reverse with the engine running (grinds) but goes in fine with it off. Goes in once in awhile. Down shifting into the forward gears is no problem although going into 1 isn't always smooth. I want to keep the car a 4 speed. Rebuild this one? Get a junkyard special and hope for the best? Future problems with other gears as the problem worsens? Slave cylinder? Fluid level o.k.

In the Portland, OR area is there a shop that will do a good rebuild on this tranny?

Don't know about the 4 speed but if reverse is knocked around on a 5 speed too much, the small idler gear may become burred resulting in it jamming in reverse, and/or, being difficult to get into reverse.
