View Full Version : Need Transmission Help

02-15-2017, 04:37 PM
I have a 1940 Commander and I am having transmission problems. I cannot always get the transmission to engage the reverse gear. Sometimes it engages other times it takes many attempts.

All the Forward gears work ok. Any suggestions ? It does have Overdrive.

Have you tried locking the O.D. Out by pulling the Handle out?

You may want to move this to the Tech Forum for better scrutiny.

Have the motor and transmission mounts been replaced in the past 77 years? As they age it changes the geometry in the shift linkages.
