Popping out of reverse
« on: Nov 08, 2005, 10:13:19 PM »
I am having problems with my tranny popping out of reverse.  I was wondering if anyone knows what the problem could be and if it would be easily repaired. Or should I jus put a new tranny in it.  I have a tranny out of an 87 but it sounds like there is more work involved than jus bolting it in that i dont want to mess with.  By the way this is in an 81 5spd.

You probably just need the little plastic bushing that goes on the bottom of the shifter.

I thought about that but I pulled the shifter out and it looked good.  And you would think that if it popped out is reverse that it would be doing it in other gears to.

I was having the same problem.  I installed Marlin's Heavy Duty Shifter Seat and Bushing and this fixed the reverse problem.  It also made shifting the truck feel like new.  My wife will even drive the truck now.  Not bad for $16 plus shipping and ten minutes of labor. 

The part numbers are as follows:
MC-10077, Heavy Duty Shifter Seat, All Other Toyota Applications, $10
MC-10078, Shifter Socket $6
