ZF6 - Low Reverse Problems
Symptoms: Periodically i will be unable to shift into low or reverse however it seems if i cant shift into one i can shift into the other then shift into the one i originally wanted? Sometimes it wont go into either and i have to kind of rock the sifter back and forth a few times between low and reverse before it will finally go into one then the other. Shifter lever seems fairly tight not much play and i haven't had any problems with gears 1-5 other than the fact that my trucks syncros are shot. Then the other day i went to start the truck in neutral clutch fully depressed and the starter seemed to engage but couldn't turn over the motor. After trying a few times i put the transmission into 2nd gear depressed the clutch then the truck turned over just fine? All of the above symptoms happened when the truck was not moving, both warm and cold.
To be clear i have no idea if the starting problem is connected to the hard to get into low reverse problem. I'm just putting all the facts out there in the event they are connected.
I'm not all that familiar with transmissions, i'm hoping someone could give me some areas of where to look first or what the possible problem could be. preferably any ideas that do not involve removing and or tearing the transmission apart.
