Shifting from 2nd to 3rd runs into reverse

Post by sjtrucks » Sun Sep 13, 2020 12:57 am

Hi,

Just got this M151A1 that runs pretty well mechanically except when shifting from 2nd to 3rd, it wants to go to reverse. No such problem shifting down from 4th to 3rd. My mechanic things the detent spring that helps it "find" neutral might be bad so it doesn't find neutral when shifting up. Was wondering if anyone has run into a similar issue? For now, double clutching seems to do the trick.

Thanks!
