95 F150 sloppy shifter- kit replacement- not in neutral

Hey guys,

I pulled my shifter out today, and discovered there indeed was a broken pin and worn out bushings that need replacing.

Only trouble is, it was not in neutral when i pulled the shifter from the top of the tranny... and when i put it all back together it was locked up.

Is there something I can do, like push some gears around in there before re-inserting the shifter?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Replied in other thread ... but here is a copy of what I wrote.

I replaced the tranny in my 90 about a year ago. I did the same thing, well, the rebuilt was in a gear from the rebuilder .... Had reverse and one other gear. I really did not want to remove the tranny again and did not have to. Remove the shifter and get one of those big long flat blade screwdrivers and stick it in where the shifter goes, move it around like you are shifting and watch what is going on, you may need another lever or screwdriver to move everything into alignment and get it to neutral. After it is in neutral put it all back together and drive away!
