2008 ranger crew 700 hard shifting

Recommended Posts

My ranger crew 700 is hard to shift and gets locked into forward. When trying to shift into reverse we have to shut engine off. Shift then restart. Checked linkage and gears are fine. The RPMs arent really that high but did notice a little improvement when we lowered it. Did notice the throttle cable looks damaged. Could this be the issue?

If the throttle cable is damaged and lowering the throttle helped I would say yes this is an issue.  Lower the idle as low as it can go without stalling and see how it shifts. Should idle at about 800 to 900 max rpm.

Define idle not to high an idle? Your description is spot on for too high of an idle. Do you have gauges on it for RPM?

Thank you all. We ordered a new throttle cable because it looked like the end was damaged.  When we replaced it though we had trouble getting the RPMs to stay at one setting. They kept jumping all over. Adjust to 900 and would jump to 1000 and 1100. After fighting with it we think we have it now. Seems to be shifting fine now.

      So this 98 Big Bear is my new project.  While I'm waiting on a few parts to show up, I'm working on a few small things.  I can shift 1-5 just fine, no problem at all (keep in mind, this is not running yet so just manual shifting sitting still).  However, I can't shift from 1-neutral.  I can hold down on the foot shifter, rock it a bit, and it will disengage the clutch so i can push it around in neutral as long as I keep pushing down on the shifter.  However, it will not downshift to neutral and stay there.  I know BB's have had some shifting difficulties in the past, but before I dive into this, have any of you fine folks encountered the same issue?  I'm tempted to just adjust the linkage a bit since these have an external linkage, but thought I'd toss the question to the group and see if there are any common issues to look for.
      Thanks guys...
