No they are not, they (and you) might think they are but no, they're not. This is supposed to be the technical forum, BigEv has a technical issue, most of the advice on this thread has either had nothing to do with his issue (ei telling him how to shift it into reverse while driving his jeep even though his transmission is on a bench, not in his jeep) or telling him to sell it or rebuild it? Are you serious? why do you think hes asking the questions he asking unless hes already come to that crossroad?... Apparently its not a "simple deal"... but instead he's given post after post of meaningless information from people who have nothing worthwhile to add and get their post count raised. If you're curious about this issue (like me) and want to see an answer, just bump it and step away from your keyboard.

I think he should put a video up of the issue like another has mentioned and maybe he'll get some technical advice on the technical forum... Maybe

(Sorry for the rant, just sick of seeing nothing but page filling on the technical forums)

I appreciate all the technical support I have received thus far.
I'm not the type of person to run into a transmission issue, and grab a spare in the garage that I know nothing about. I want to know as much as possible.

I will get a video out as soon as possible, as this might help narrow down the playing field.

Have you read the post you have contributed to the thread?

Glass house and all that.

People are trying to help. It is a technical discussion. A discussion. Stop being rude.

ETA: I understand the question being asked. I am waiting for the video to be posted before offering a solution if there is a problem.

Well done on the Vid. I couldn't tell though if the reverse arm bracket and reverse shift arm is installed in those transmissions during the actions you demonstrate. Have you tried the engagement/disengagement action with the shift shafts removed--meaning pull all the shift shafts and remove the plugs/interlock pins and ball from the passageway in the intermediate plate? Might you have an out of true shift shaft that isn't moving properly thru the intermediate plate.
I've just finished a rebuild on an AX15, and I now have two others torn down in the garage awaiting parts, and none of them required the amount of force you demonstrated to shift in or out of reverse.

With the detent screw loose, it shifts perfect, I think you may be right with the alignment shaft. I'll make another video.

Shift arm and fork were installed on this video.

With the other transmissions laying right there, you may be able to swap over a shift shaft from one of them. Remember that these shift shafts work in concert with each other via the interlocks. Your reverse shift rail may be fine, and the problem is in another one with which that one interacts via the interlock pins/plugs. Also consider the reverse shift head, there's a ball in there as well. Something is binding you up in there, damaged ball etc and since you said transmission #1 had been rebuilt, you have to consider something the other rebuilder did that wasn't quite right.
I'd still advocate gutting the intermediate plate of all interlocks/plugs/balls, see how it moves then (think you already implied it worked okay with just the detent ball released from tension), and then start adding things back in one-by-one, critically looking at each notch in the shafts, how the interlock pins/balls/plugs move in their bores, and when you get to the one that boogers it up you'll likely have an answer. I'm real suspicious of the previous rebuild now, thinking it over more.

Sorry no, haven't even touched them. But honestly I think you nailed it with the shift shaft. There isn't much else it could be

Always hard to tell with transmissions. If you end up yanking all the shift rails and interlock pins to get a good look at everything, I have a photo tutorial on putting all that stuff back together if you need. Makes it a bit less nail-biting getting things back together.
