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.


Thank you much,

Sines, Adam

What do you mean it's stuck in second or third gear, can you move the shifter with the engine off? I've never messed with that trans.. Is the top removable to access the shift forks? Did you have it in one gear when you pulled it and end up possibly putting it back in a different position somehow?

If it was shifting OK when you pulled it, it should still be shifting OK unless you did not get the forks lined up correctly when you put the cover back on. Pull the cover and see if the forks were correctly inserted into the sliders.

I have tried to remove the plate and reset the forks about 12 times. I was getting so mad I just brought it to the transmission guy. It was getting to the point I wanted to burn it to the ground. Lol. Thanks for the help though.

Sines, Adam
