Well darn, there is no way to drive that pin in and then drive the smaller one into the main. I really was hoping they (ZF) used one large one, and serviced newer ones with sleeved pins. Let me know when you get the new unit in and if it does look new...

Thanks a lot for snapping that picture for me!

Haha if it's not new, I'm gonna go "Charlie Wenzel" on him.

Another update. I managed to get second roll pin in, so for now I think I am good. I will monitor the pins to see if they start walking. I also took a cotter pin and unfolded it and looped it through the center of the small roll pin so if it decides to walk, it is somewhat held in... We will see how it works!

Got it. It's new. It's very, very new.

No marks from bolts. No sensor for reverse. Zero wear anywhere.

Same roll pin with another inside it looks like.

Thanks for those pictures! Sure looks nice and new! I got the second pin in and safety wired it so if the little pin tries to walk it hopefully won't get far but now I am concerned over how much damage was done when the small pin got lunched on by the gears. Might explain the boucing shifter in 3rd gear. Anyway, thanks again for the insight!

Have a safe holiday!

I know this is kinda an old thread but mine just did the same thing except the pin did fall into the transmission.. Should I be worried?
