Manual Transmission Problems
I have a 1982 CJ-5 Renegade with a 350 engine swap. My throw out bearing started to make a lot of noise so I decided to pull my transmission(T176). While I was in the I replaced the pilot bearing as well. The pilot bearing was completely toast. It was in about ten pieces.
1: If my pilot bearing is that bad, does it mean I have a unbalanced crank and/or something in my transmission is not right?
I heard that from my neighbor tonight. He said I should sell it ASAP.
Going on, once I put the new bearing and throw out bearing back in I put everything back together. Oh I for got I had to take the top plate off my transmission(T176) and pull the stick and all. I had a little trouble, so I thought, putting the top plate back on but after some time it finally went.
So after a week of trial and error I was finally done. When I started it and went to pull out I was stuck only in 2nd or 3rd gear. I have no idea what to do next. I am open for any suggestions. I'm starting to think this was a very bad investment.
HELP IS NEEDED!!!!
Thank you much,
