Tacoma will not Shift?

November 26, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Tacoma 1998 2.7Lt, 4WD.Toyota_W56_MTTOY005

Questions:  My transmission is stuck in 1st gear but the shift lever is in the neutral position. It drives in 1st gear and feels smooth, but can’t be shifted. I have replaced the shift lever bushing and seat, and also the clutch master and slave. Today I pulled the trans and the shift lever still won’t budge. What can be the possible cause and solution?

Answer:  The factory technical Rep thinks that some how the shifter lug internal got shifted into low gear and because of a worn shifter seat (bushing) allowed the stub to remain in the (N) position.

If you look at an angle towards the right front corner of the shifter opening and look down in the transmission you will see 3 shift gates  furthest to the right is the ½ rail. This rail would need to be pried forward into the (N) position because right now being in gear it has engaged all of the interlocks and will not allow you to shift another gear.

If this is unsuccessful the tail housing would need to be removed to get it back into (N).

Ford ZF 6 Speed Interchanagability

- Author: bartbarton

I have a F350 Ford 6.0L 4WD

Question:  What are the differences in the ZF-6 trans’ between the 6.0 and the 6.4? Are they interchangeable? They call for the same clutch, but I’ve read that the input shaft is different…is that possible?

Answer: The ZFS650_MTFRD059Input shaft is longer on the 6.4L and the shifter location is further back. They are not interchangeable.

Chevy K10 72 need improved transmission

November 12, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a 1972 Chevrolet K10 1/2 ton 4WD.

Question:  I am rebuilding my nv4500350 engine, and would like to replace the Saginaw 3-speed with a better transmission! I was leaning toward NV4500, since I would prefer to stay with manual shift. I would also like to convert to hydraulic clutch. Do you have a “kit” for this truck, or perhaps suggestions? At this point any information is welcomed! Thank you,


We need to know which transfer case the truck has in it right now.. We would assume it is the factory NP205 10 spline unit…

For the NV4500 you will need the following parts:

  • 712576 bell kit $399
  • 50-0217 transfer case adapter kit $599.00
  • MTGM009N $1695.00 OUTRIGHT NEW
  • Shift stub and stick $125.00

Hydraulics would be best to search online and go with Wilwood or something aftermarket

If you would like more information or to place the order give Scott a call toll free 888-824-2012 he can help you.
