Diagnosing a shifting problem with manual transmission

January 18, 2018 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Ford Ranger 2010 with 4.0lt manual 4WD.


I recently replaced the clutch, slave cylinder, master cylinder, pilot and throw-out bearing on my ford ranger, because 1st and second gear were getting difficult to shift into, especially when from a stop (1st gear/reverse). After extensive bleeding and verifying the slave is fully disengaging the pressure plate, my 1st and reverse gear are still difficult to shift while from a stop, however my second gear is now very difficult to shift into. Could this be a syncro issue or a shift fork issue, or something completely different? and if so, how can I test to see what may be causing the issue. thank you for your time in the matter. (truck has 130,000+ miles on all original drive train).


Our experience tells us that anytime the lower gears are hard to shift the clutch components are suspect….

Try shifting those gears with engine off and see what it does. If it shifts good that way depress the clutch

and start the vehicle .. do not let the clutch up and see how it shifts… If it changes from off to run it is a clutch / hyd issue


If it’s hard both ways it is an internal trans issue, then its time to open the transmission and inspect and replace damaged part or replace with a remanufacture unit.

For additional technical support give Scott a call toll free 888-824-2012 he can help you, get you the correct parts or direct drop in replacement unit.

Interchange transfer case in

January 15, 2018 - Author: bartbarton

Question: Can I put a NP263xhd in place of a NP261HD vehicle is

2001 2500hd 6.0 NV4500 5 speed


Yes this could be done but the NV263 is electric shift so without adding the switch, module, shift motor ext there would be no way to shift the transfer case.  May be able to track these parts in local salvage yard or on line.

Cummins automatic transfer case

January 12, 2018 - Author: bartbarton


Will a 1990 Cummins Automatic np205 transfer case bolt to a 96 Cummins NV4500 Transmission without an adapter?


Yes it will as long as the NV4500 has the 23 spline mainshaft in it and you would use everything from the automatic witch is adaptor and coupling sleeve
