A club member says his Greenbrier is stuck in 4th gear. We are going
up tonight to rescue him & look it over.
If the trans is stuck - can anybody recommend what might be wrong - and
how to fix it?
I have seen this a couple times. Once was overall slop(wear) in mainshaft components, allowing 3-4 drive dogs to pop out and jam 4th gear on a 64-5 tranny.
Second occurrence was when clutch gear needle bearings welded themselves to the mainshaft, creating a direct drive only transmission. This was a 61-3 tranny. This failure was preceeded by noise in lower gears for some time.
Either way, if the shifter is functioning properly, the trans will need to come out.
