Triumph TR6 - Neutral?

Hello everyone, put the tranny back in the car this morning, and while hooking up the driveshaft I found that while the shifter was in the neutral position I could'nt rotate the drive shaft without pressing on the clutch. All I did was replace the front and rear seals along with the top cover gasket. '74 TR6

Success! To all of you who where thinking about my neutral problem here is what I found. This morning as I sat looking at my car on jack stands with coffee in hand, it occured to me that the problem had to be when I reassembled the top cover. After removing the top cover I looked inside and within seconds found that the reverse lever wasn't engaged with the lever in the cover. With a flip of my finger, problem solved!

Hey Mark,

Good job, I'll call YOU on my first trans repair. <G>

By the way, there are consequences for those who do not register. You'll wind up having to help John down in Florida. <G>

Laughing out loud at you Don.

Now THAT'S funny!

I have noticed that the threats of small, thermonuclear device detonation in his garage have induced John (of Florida fame) to sign right up.
