I have a 70 Ford 100 that has a transmission problem anybody out there know anything about them? If I put it in Granny gear I have to remove the shifting lever and take a screwdriver to align the gears so it will roll. When I use 2nd or 3rd gear it sounds like it is partily in 2 gears and clatters. It also jumps out of reverse.4th gear works, but is noisey. Someone said the shifting fork is missing. Anybody know where I can get the parts I need and instructions of how to install them. Thanks AL

Sounds like the shifter is not moving, holding the gears in the proper place for them to work.
Are the detents working?

I haven't ripped one apart yet,But I have 2 of those trans. The one on my 100 is excellent the one on the parts tractor I noticed shifts very hard. I think I remember seeing somewhere that there is a roll pin or something that can shear on the forks and cause this. not sure but I will see what makes it tick. Who knows maybe someone else on here has had same issue? I also came across a service manual that had everything in detail about checking and rebuilding these, now I have to remember where I saw that ( to many fires burning at one time) I'll be back soon, going to do some checking.

Well It is not the same book but on here there is a good one also. go to Manuals up top, then click Transmission manuals, you will find one in the list that says Tecumseh/peerless 2300 series repair manual. there is also a parts manual above this one. Download both of them. I flipped through the repair one quick, You will like that one! it has pictures and detailed steps for rebuilding. good luck and happy reading :thumbs:

I found better one yet. In our manuals section there is a Tecumseh technicians hand book. that is same as the other repair manual but more pages. On page 119 you will see a great picture of the shift forks and shafts, it also goes into depth about what would cause certain problems.

i have downloaded the manuals and will take time to study them. Thank you for all the help. The tranny is the main thing left to make this a very nice lil tractor.
