am restoring a plow-trac and at present the transmission is holding up progress. After finding that the shifting ball was to rusted to ride smoothly on the handle I fixed that problem. Now however a question for the Simplicity experts. All the gears can be engaged (it has 3 plus reverse) however when I get it to reverse the shift lever doesn't want to remain in the position that is required to use the reverse gear. It drops down and engages BOTH GEARS on the shift rod onto the reverse gear which then locks up the drive system. I didn't post pics because they probably wouldn't help and I don't have any of the open gearbox right now. If they would help then I can post them upon request. I figure that someone out there has run into the same issue. Any help would be appreciated.
