    Is the select shoe still in place? At least shift it by hand at the lever before you drop. You can compare that to the shifter being moved with an assistant. It's more likely to be an external issue since it's all 3.

    Wym the “select shoe”?? I’ve disconnected both cables and tried repeatedly to get it into any of the 3 gears by hand and it won’t go or even try to go into gear.

    Select shoe is a small cube of plastic at the select levers on the trans. Without it the lever doesnt pull up or down like it should.

    Thanks. A buddy of mine sent me a pic of it. And after checking it out mine are still in place as they should be.

    Got the trans out and opened up and immediately found my problem. That’s a lot of work and hassle for a lil ole pin to be slid outta place. But she’s fixed and currently going back in. Thanks everyone for your input and advice. Hope my experience can help someone else in the future.
