well, is there any grinding noises or anything out of the ordinary? I have toasted both the type b tranny and FULLY toasted my clutch so that there was no clutch face left whatsoever.

If the tranny went out, usually the tranny will make some horrible grinding noise. I killed a synchro or something like that by speed shifting, and when I drove off, it would screech and squeal something scary. I went and got a rebuilt type a tranny, and it works wonders.

As for your clutch, when the vehicle was in gear, did you get any clutch slippage, where when you stepped on the throttle the car wouldn't go anywhere, but your rpms would jump? That could cause it not to go anywhere.

Where do you live exactly? I have 2 type b trannies sitting in my shed, and would be willing to give one away.

have you tried putting it in gear while the car is running? what happens then? It could be a million in one things, and it even could be the linkage that broke, but from what I've heard, it's kind of hard to do. I'm not an expert, remember that, I'm just offering ideas. Have you tried adjusting your clutch from under the car? You can climb under the car, and adjust the slave cylinder to move the clutch closer to the flywheel so that it won't slip. For all you know, your clutch could not be engaging properly, and could be the problem.

It could be the ball end on the shift stick is broken off or the cross pin has come out. Easy to check with the consol removal being the hard part. otherwise the trans is probably trash on the shift rods inside. Cheaper to replace the trans. It's time for a 5 speed anyway!

theramz is probably right about the shift rods inside the trans. I had a similar problem with my 73' where I lost 1st and 2nd gear. It turned out to be the roll pin that secures the shift fork to the rod had sheared and replacing it solved the problem. But tearing down the tranny to find out requires some time and some skill so your best bet is replacement. Besides a five speed will bolt right into place. good luck

Early five speeds (77-78)are weak but the '82 2+2 has a close ratio and the 3.9 R200.79-83 will bolt in. 82-83 Turbo cars had the bullet proof T-5 Borg Warner.

The T-5 uses a different rear spline so if your lucky enough to find one make sure you get the drive shaft too.
