2 / 3 shift shaft will not move

Post by schil123 » Mon Oct 30, 2017 4:15 am

Hello all,

Bought another basket case mule this past summer. It was missing the drive shaft, brakes and not running. Did not think much of it until I started checking things out. It will not shift into 2nd or 3rd. Reverse and 1st shift fine. So do high and low. I have never been into the transmission on a mule. Just wondering were to start? The deck is off for sand blasting. So front of trans case should be "easy" to remove. Anyone had this issue before? Any ideas?

Thank you in advance!

Your problem was described in the following Post. I would start by removing the Swing Arm holding the 2nd-3rd Shift Rod. This is found under the deck close to the Gun Door opening and the assy is secured to the deck with 3 phillip headed countersunk bolts. Theses arms must swing freely. If the swing arm is frozen then you will see the bed flex as you try to shift into 2nd or 3rd.

Please contact me if you need further assistance or parts.

Mules are my passion
