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

rollmeoverplease 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

jpdocdave 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.

Standard trans stuck in reverse. Clutch disengages, but shifter is jammed. Was sitting for 6 mo. Any ideas out there. Thanks
