Awesome glad you got this fixed. I have been having the same problems with no clue how to fix it. I had a thread awhile ago about this and mentioned the pilot bushing but like said here no one thought that could be a problem.

Well glad you got it fixed and can't wait to fix mine. Guess my lift will have to wait a little while longer.

Btw did you grinding going into reverse go away as well?

Glad you got her fixed and thanks for reporting back as to the cause. I never would have guessed the pilot bearing. Your issue seemed to be hydraulic related and your symptoms were identical to mine each time I suffered an hydraulic issue.
Icehead14... be aware that there is no synchro for reverse on these trannies. Most shift into a forward gear first before going into reverse to make this shift easier.

yes it did go away, but as Idaholtby said, I usually have to throw it into 4rth before it will go fully in, but at least now I can get it into gear to do so.

Interesting, I'm about to do my AX15 swap and have been following this thread.

The package that the AA bushing comes in clearly states to "Soak the bushing in 10w40 motor oil over night prior to installation" on mine. I'll be sure to do so after your bad luck!

I'm almost ready to get this show on the road!

Mine said nothing about using multi-grade oil, it just said 20W-40W motor oil, so I went and got straight 30W

it amuses me though, because I had a shop install the AX15 the first time around, because I didn't have the means then to do it myself, and I ended up having to come back and redo it all anyway. They didn't even install my transfer case linkage right I wonder what the mechanic was doing when he was "reading" that card with the lubrication instructions.

now that I have a tranny jack, I'm kicking myself for not doing it myself back then
