I have an 81 cj7 with a 4 speed tranny. As I was driving, I noticed that the gears seem to be grinding a little bit. I figured I would try to check transmission fluid to see if it was okay. Brain surgeon that I am, was on the wrong side of the transmission. What I thought was the filler plug, was actually the reverse shifting arm pivot bolt. Now it won't go in reverse.
In order to fix this, do I have to take out the entire transmission? I've never been inside a transmission before, and don't want to mess anything up. But if it's an easy fix, I'd like to give it a try. Any suggestions?
Oh, and after all that, it didn't need transmission fluid at all. The level was fine
