Muncie 4 speed stuck in Second

Howdy everyone! Great site.

Let my roomate drive the Vette and it came back stuck in second. The clutch is still working but the shifter won't move out of position. Looking in the books I have, there is nothing and I couldn't find any similar problems on this board or anywhere on the net. I'm going to lift the car this afternoon but am looking for a little guidance first. Is it a linkage problem or something internal?

The car is a 64 Corvette, muncie 4 speed and hurst shifter. It has always been a little difficult to shift gears but nothing like this. I tried pretty aggressive persuaision to no avail.

Thanks for the help,

-j

Bound linkage? I know a friend of mine had a lot of problems with loose linkage on his firebird that caused a lot of trouble.

If it is the factory shifter, that is probably the problem. Jack it up on jack stands, get under it and with an adjustable wrench on the transmission arms try and move them. The two on the side cover (1-2,3-4) should be straight up. Once you get it unstuck go buy a Hurst Competition Plus shifter.

Thanks for the quick replies guys. Turns out it was a loose nut on the shifter arm that allowed enough play for the linkage to bind. I'll definately have to take a look at that competition shifter too.

thanks again,
