Jim, I bought a new TR7 in 1980 with the 5-speed tranny.  First cold weather snap hit and had problems with gear change.  Took it in for service and they drained the trans of gear oil and replaced it with ATF.  A service bulletin had just been sent out instructing the dealers to do that.  Never had another problem. Tony ChildsAnderson, SC1972 Spitfire MKIV1973 Stag MK2Sent from my Galaxy Tab® S2

Sometimes it’s fine.   Not as familiar with this tranny.  With low mileage can’t believe it something inside.  Any plastic bushes on the shift linkage that could explain.   It sure what to do, don’t want o pull tranny as the original exhaust, cats etc still installed.Thanks in advanceJim HenningsenOcala FL61 TR3A 62 Tr4a75 Tr681 tr8Sent from my iPad** triumphs at autox.team.net **Donate: http://www.team.net/donate.htmlArchive: http://www.team.net/pipermail/triumphs  http://www.team.net/archiveUnsubscribe/Manage: http://autox.team.net/mailman/options/triumphs/tochilds@bellsouth.net
