so the clutch works, it will move in reverse, and then coast with the clutch in? sounds like a bearing or something seized up. you can try removing the shifter, but it doesn't sound like good news.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

i just had mine stuck in reverse and it was the reverse idler gear. you have to reach in the back of the tranny with a hooking tool (we made ours just heated a rod and bent the end of it), and pull that shift fork towards you its kinda a pain. if you cant get it that way there is a bolt on the right side of the tranny take that out and use a screw driver to pop it. good luck

Mine was stuck, but we got in cleared up usng a bent rod. However, it wasn't 100 miles later that everything crapped out.
