Cannot select any gear

Postby hoys » Sat Jan 16, 2016 3:40 pm

Long story short, had two shifter cables fray or break, took awhile to order a new custom one, went to put it on last night and the car will not go into any gear, even when actuating the shift mechanism on the transmission by hand. Car sat for about four months, would go into gear just fine before.

Any ideas?

Thanks :)

Original problem was broken cable I assume. All working fine prior assuming. Which cable broke ? up and down or side to side ?

Does the shifter move at all or does it feel locked in place ?

Moves fine. Without the shifter cables connected I can't shift the trans at the bellcrank

So you cant even get the gears to change on the trans when moving the selector on the trans with the cables off ...

Nope. Like I said though it shifted fine before it was parked

Very strange ... does it roll or is it stuck in a gear ?

Does engaging the clutch pedal help at all?

Engaging the clutch does nothing (but I haven't confirmed that the hydraulic system still works) and the car isn't in gear, while pushing it the accessory belt doesn't turn.

If you cant change gears manually at trans its either internal or the part the cables attach to is messed up.

Fixed this a bit ago. We had a bit too much to drink when we put the cables in and mixed the two up.
