Community Q&A Question: T-5 rebuild

Asking About: Mustang Ford Performance T5 Transmission Rebuild Kit (85-04)


T-5 rebuild

I purchased the rebuild kit from LMR due to my 2nd gear grinding every now and then. I just finished the rebuild and added a new Pro 5.0 shifter yesterday.... As soon as I started driving and tried going into 2nd gear I just hear a "spin sound" as I release the clutch. The trans won't go into 2nd. Additionally it now doesn't go into 4th gear, yet 1st, 3nd, 5th and reverse all work fine. Any thought on what may have gone wrong? Any ideas would be great.
P.s I've had nothing but great products from you guys and fast shipping. Many more purchases from LMR to come!

Hopefully it is just an engagement issue with the Shifter stops. I would first try adjusting the lower Shifter stop to a more open position. If that doesn't work slap the stock Shifter back in and see if that works. Finally if it is still not working it may be necessary to open the gear box up again. I hope not. Good luck and don't panic it is probably something small.

Yeah we backed the stops out and nothing. Thought about the shifter swap too. Thanks for the reply - john last year
