My new jeep. what you think?9 tranny problems,,HELP!)

bought this jeep a couple weeks ago for $1,000. inline 6 5-speed 153,xxx
3 inch body, 33" tires (new). body and frame in grade A condition no spot where rusted all the way through frame, one quarter size hole under gad peddle. cant figure out of to but pic on post but got it on my profile. i am having some tranny problem. just acts up sometimes. will only let me shift into 3rd,4th,and 5th. ride it out in 3rd makes a small clunk noise then will let me shift into every gear.... trying tio figure it out but i need some help. it also want drop into 5th and R like it does with the other gears i think its got to do with the detent spring? not sure tho checked them all look good.

Man for a grand it sounds like what I bought for 3K and I didn't even know if it ran. I say go get a used tranny for a few hundred bucks and bolt it in.

maybe the 3" body lift is letting the stick hit the tub when you are shifting? i would put a 1" or stock body lift on it and see if your tranny works like it should then because i bet the is 100 percent of your trouble

It doestnt hit at all... Just does it randomly. I'll be driving down the road then come to a stop and try putting it in 1st or 2nd and it won't. No rub or hitting

May want to see if your shifter boot is interfering with movement. May be part of your problem. Old boots get hard. Otherwise the tub is worth the grand you spent alone.

Sounds to me like the bearings are wore out it in the tranny and not keeping everything lined up properly. That clunk you hear is more than likely everything settling back into place which then allows you to shift into the next gear fairly smooth.

Changing the bearings is basically the same as a rebuild since you have it open you might as well replace all the syncros and seals also
