Joe Black Posted August 7, 2011 Share Posted August 7, 2011 Greetings all! Newbie to the forum here so apologies if this info posted elsewhere as search didn't find me an answer. Basically I've got a couple Midliners, 1986 and 1992, but the '86 transmission won't stay in 5th gear as it will "pop out" as soon as you release pressure on the shifter. You could hold it in with some effort, sometimes a LOT of effort! The small linkage on the tranny, with rod ends both ends attaches shift linkage to tranny, I replaced with new parts as the original was deteriorated and sloppy, but this made no imporvement. Could this be adjustment? Even though this is an '86 it has just under 5000 miles (former state agency truck) and I'm building out as a tilt-tray for farm and hobby use. Thanks for any info y'all can provide! I'll see if I can post a couple pics of the tranny... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
