Hi everyone, I have been having some problems with my 6speed transmission in as reverse pops out quite often and its getting to a point where I need to do something about it. My question is have any of the members on here experienced this and if so what was found to be the problem and course of action to repair? All forward gears are fine other than the normal sticky 2nd gear issue that a lot of these cars have. Thanks.
Mine was caused by the linkage hitting the cooler pipes in the engine bay . Also fitted the gear linkage upgrade from Evil empire which had brass bushes instead of plastic.
You should be able to see where it hits the pipes and move them sufficiently to stop it.
Unfortunately I’ve checked that already and its clearing those pipes no problem. Think its internal.
Paul Wright sold a good 6 speed box few days ago, and he knows these stuff !
Yeah I was to slow Spiros, saw it first day think it was gone the next. Talking to Rob of the empire today and he’s checking out parts availability for what he thinks I need. Gearbox parts are going to be a real problem for our cars as time goes on.
Yes, hopefully Rob will come up with something !
Probably be on the lookout for a 6speed box as well just in case.
