No 3rd or 4th gear

I lost 3rd and 4th gear today on my 86 CJ7. It has a G-Force T5 5 speed transmission. First, second, fifth and reverse all work fine. Any ideas what the problem is? I would love for someone to come on the forum and tell me there is a reset button.

Well, they share the same synchronizer and shift fork so that would be a good place to start. If it was a slow grinding death, I would suspect the synchro. If it was working fine then made a noise and quit, I would suspect the shift fork.

Everything was working fine, then it popped and went out. Is the shift fork difficult/ expensive to repair? Thanks for the help.

I would pull the cover and see what you've got before you go ordering parts but a 3-4 shift fork should cost you around $20. There are 3 on eBay for $17.50 + $5 s&h.

Look at pages 3-4 and 3-7 in the T5 Rebuild Manual for the parts in question.

Better yet go to Morris4x4 and look at numbers 17 and 39. My guess is you will need the 3-4 shift fork number 39.

Update: I finally got around to pulling the transmission out. Turns out I broke the main shaft right behind the 3rd and 4th gear syncros. Definitely not going back with a T5. Probably going with a NV4500 or SM465.
