Fingers crossed - I have a Studebaker half ton pickup with V8, 3 speed borg warner T85 trans with O/D, and I'm having issues and hoping someone has some advice for me.
I cannot shift into reverse and cannot disengage the O/D with the cable. I removed the linkage from the low/reverse lever on the trans but not able to move lever at the transmission, (maybe stuck in first?) However, I still can put shift lever in first gear, shift to second and third with no issues. I also disconnected the O/D cable from the O/D lever (at trans) and I'm not able to move that lever either. Any ideas on the problem are appreciated.
