Hi guys, Iíve been having some shifter problems lately with the 56pan and need a bit of advise.
I got time to take the ratchet top apart last night and was glad to find one of the shifter pawl springs in bad condition.(stretched and twisted). After closer examination, I noticed that the hole that the left shifter pawl works in is missing its roll pin which runs in the key of the shifter pawl to keep it from rotating around in the hole. The strange thing is that even if the roll pin was in there the orientation of the key slot in that shifter pawl would make the pawl install 90 degrees off. Iím guessing someone removed the roll pin so that they could use that shifter pawl.
Anyone got any good exploded view of the two shifter pawls, which show the orientation of the key slots? (It may help me figure out what I got here.)
Anyone ever put one together with out using the roll pin? (This had lots of miles before having a problem.)
Notice the location of the key in this shifter pawl. It needs to be 90 degrees from where it is. The reason it fits in is because the roll dowel has been removed from this hole. -Steve
