Re: zf6 stuck in 6

Re: zf6 stuck in 6

I used to get trucks all the time that were stuck in gear, and like has been said I just would take the shifter off and pry the forks back into neutral with a prybar.

even if the tranny is junk, its still a great deal. Id jump on it

Thanks for all who posted on this subject

I am extemely gratefull you have save my canadian bacon by making it clear that linkage problems can be jury rigged without r R+R of the unit .. My situation the split pin pin partially wiggles out and causes the forks to bind ..(as seen when looking down in the hole with shifter off ) I did not want to try to replace the pin with a new one and cant really see any way its even possible ..my soulution so far is mild STeel wire laced thru the pin and twisted so it stays in place , and so far its all good news ! I want to get good synthetic fluid too and add that cooler to it as well and take advantage of the pump that is all ready there . you all saved me a lot of money time and skinned knuckles by explaining such a simple thing no on ever heard of before. Think of hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars in the hand of mechanics who would have sold a transmission and labor to so many suckers like me !!
cheers from Leon in ALBERTA
