Update: I've noticed one mechanical issue with the 3.52.

My dad had something similar happen with his MT Ranger - not that he engine off coasts, but the sticking gear-neutral issue. I'll e-mail him about it and see what it was (but he did end up with an $800 clutch job).

I've never changed a transmission or clutch so pardon my ignorance, but is the clutch part of the transmission? Is the old Swift clutch in the car now as opposed to the Blackfly's practically new clutch?

If the transmissions are interchangeable then the clutch should be as well...??? But I really have no clue if that's correct.

The first problem sounds like a clutch issue to me. You shouldn't get a "crunch" of any kind as long as the input shaft is allowed to spin free of the engine, and bad synchros would show up in normal engine-on driving. The second problem I can't explain, as there really shouldn't be anything dragging if the trans is truly in neutral.

Maybe something is off with the shift linkage?

95: The clutch assembly isn't part of the transmission - it's attached to the flywheel. When you pull the tranny, the clutch assembly remains behind, on the engine. I retained my original assembly in the swap.

Brick, your comment and another page I just read suggests it may be the bearing supporting the input shaft hanging up a little:

Quote:
There are two potential bearing-noise makers in the clutch system-the release bearing and the pilot bearing. To determine which one, if either, is making the noise follow these steps:

Step 1 With the engine running and the transmission in neutral, if the noise occurs it is in the transmission, most likely the front bearing supporting the input shaft.
If that's it, it's not a huge deal. I can simply key-start the engine when I occasionally can't get the shifter to go in. I'm not going to pull it apart again any time soon

I would however still like it to be a linkage or cable problem.

Ah.. if it's the clutch release bearing... that kinda sucks...

Not that you can't fix it in an afternoon, but who's motivated to take a tranny off just to replace a tiny part?

Someone recommended to me that I put a new clutch release bearing on my tranny when I got it. Now I'm glad I listened

It's really not a big deal. Just came back from a longish drive and out of maybe 2 dozen codfish, I only had to keystart twice due to the shifter not wanting to slot into gear.

I've decided not to worry about it. It's a minor issue and I'm very happy with the FE gains it's brought.

Update: since the clutch cable adjustment, I've had absolutely NO problems with the 'new' long-legged transmission in any way.
