ej 3 speed gear box

by trevorbrown » Sun Nov 15, 2020 3:54 pm

I have a 62 ej grey motor with 3 speed crash box which i am having trouble with selecting 1st/reverse. Static, i can select 1st without hassle a dozen times or so, then it gets stuck and i cant select 1st/reverse. I know the selectors have play in them but the 1st/reverse side has a little more play than the 2nd/3rd side. at the gear box the selector coming out of the gear box for 1st/reverse has a bit of slop/play. Is the problem in the linkage or the gear box?

Probably linkage.

Check that the little arms on the box don't have flogged out holes, then adjust linkage as per the workshop manual.

Had a similar problem with an FB and adjusting the linkage at the steering column sorted it out. In my case I would get second when trying for reverse.

Just a thought, is there any correlation of the problem with engine and gearbox changing temperature? Say the problem occurs as the engine warms up. Then one might suspect an internal gearbox problem.

I would try playing with the linkage first. If doesn’t change things I would try another box if you can get one. That is just me. I don’t mind swapping gearboxes around but never played with internals myself.
