Hi guys Im new and please don't be offended but I'm a kiwi - sorry!!!

Anyway have a 91 D21 floor shift that wont go into 3rd. All other gears are fine but it's like there is no position for 3rd - lever won't move from neutral plane.

Am capable of pulling it down but wondered if anyone had any ideas before I get all grubby and frustrated.

Its done about 600Km apparently - speedo don't work

Could be a number of problems, pulling it down will sort it out, however with that many kays you're looking at a box on borrowed time, so replace the box with an exchange reconditioned unit so you don't have a bearing or synchro failure to deal with in six months time.

Might be a good idea BUT going rate for a supposedly reconned box is about $1500 over here. Any idea what a reco kit costs your side of the ditch?? Ta

Yeah about that. Maybe a bit less. Not many cheaper options
