      T-56 stuck in reverse

      Tried to take the car on its first road test today. Got 2.5 miles from the house and stalled the car. When I got it started again, it went backwards in neutral. I had to drive 2.5 miles home backwards. About 1/4 mile from home it went back to normal.

      I did hear some grinding when I coasted to a stop before the problems started. Anything I should do or check from the outside before I decide the trans needs to come out?

      Well, figured out what happened in there. The output bearing failed. Iím guessing that pushed the reverse forward into the synchro and engaged reverse. Canít say I know why it happened. Fluid came out the fill plug when I took that off and I got just under a gallon total from it.







      The bearings were still all contained in the race and I donít see any damage to and gears yet. The inner race from that bearing is stuck on there however right now so Iíll have to figure out how to get it off.
