My T-150 Gear Pics, Anyone see anything wrong??

I was having trouble in First gear the clutch would just continue to slip. It wouldn't lock in. Throw it into second and no problems. I thought first gear must have been bad so I pulled the cover plate to check it out. Does anyone see anything, in these pics, that looks wrong or that needs attention? Thanks.

I have never had the transmission apart. I just pulled the cover to see if I could notice any damage or wear.

It looks fine, but what about the shift forks? Are they worn?

Sounds like a bad clutch.

Probably is. It couldn't be the tranny. But you would think the clutch would be less prone to slip in the lower gear with the mechanical advantage of gear reduction.

No... cant be. That would happen with all gears right?

I agree, but if we are going to use the word "slip", it can only be the clutch or the tires....

I completely agree, and those are my exact thoughts as gears cannot slip.


I see you hit a nice round 3500 for whatever it's worth. Wish I won that much on ly last Vegas trip.

Slipping in 1st, hmm, how are the axles? The two piece ones can slip I think before the wheel falls off....

LOL. Thanks. The first 1000 of so were fast and furious, however, after seeing the same questions again and again, I've become a lot pickier as to what posts I answer.
Mike I agree the axle hubs could be at fault. The only reason I didn't suggest it is because all the ones I've seen, once the hub spins, the vehicle is virtually immobile. Mot saying there isn't a first time for anything........

It wouldn't lock in.
mranth, are you saying that the transmission won't stay in gear?

It stays in gear, I can shift it into first. It just hardly moves when a let the clutch out. It doesn't grind it acts like the gear is wore off but they look good. It's fine in 2nd and third.

Have someone hop out and CAREFULLY look under the Jeep. With the brakes applied, put the Jeep in first and let out the clutch. With the engine running (and everything slipping merrily away), does the driveline turn? If not, then then the clutch is bad, or out of adjustment (probably bad by now!). If it does, then you probably have a rear axle problem. Go and see which hub nut is turning.That will be the bad hub.
