Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: No High Gear?

I just replaced the triple gear bushings and installed a new ball bearing fourth main. I also took the clutches out to inspect them. After first start up I have no high gear. Also an intermittent squeak like a rub now and again. I do have low and reverse. Ideas? PK

Check clutch fingers adjustment inside transmission. This can be done through cover.

Clutch linkage adjusted properly? Is the clutch shaft adjusting bolt coming off the brake lever cam?

Check the parking brake shaft. In some cases it can be bent which will hold the clutch in the neutral position with the pedal out. Also the adjustment of the link between low pedal and clutch. See attachment.

Well you guys were right. I went out after feeding the cows and looked it all over again. The lever cleared the cam after I installed the motor and bolted it down. Then I put in the floor boards. Guess what the problem was? I pulled the floor boards and it works. There was just enough change after assembly that it hit. I can see it's been rubbing for a long time. Thanks for all the help. Norm, that's a handy drawing. PK

Norm has it correct. It is likely the adjustable link to the low pedal. I replaced bands once and had the same issue after reinstalling the hogshead. Try this, remove the link entirely and see if you can turn the motor over with the hand crank. If it acts like it's in gear, then the link needs shortened. I had the same issue once.

Gary, that's great. It's the experience I'm looking for so everyone that chips in is that much more I learn. Thanks, PK.
