39 Plymouth Reverse Gear

Dennis Detweiler

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 39 Plymouth that was mostly restored. Tranny won't go into reverse. I removed the top plate and forks and can manually move the slider gear into 1st, but it won't engage into the reverse idler gear? It slides up to the idler, but hits a solid stop. Rocking the car back and forth doesn't help. It drives and shifts fine into 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The gears all look ok. I haven't drained the gear oil to see deeper into the casing. Next step? Thanks.
