Rebuilding a '91 Big Boss 6X6 - Won't start in Reverse
I am so glad that I found this forum.
This is my first post here and thank all of you for making it a great forum.
While not new to auto mechanics, I am a little frustrated with my '91 Big Boss.
Sometimes it will start in Reverse and sometimes it wont - but in either case the engine will turnover well. Simply putting the shift lever into High solves the problem and it starts right up. If I power down and re-try to start in Reverse - sometime it will and other times it wont.
So far I have been enjoying the Big Boss - I just have to be careful where I park it - as it usually only starts in High, Neutral, or Low.
Do any of you have thoughts on this - either what is causing it, or how to circumvent it?
Thank you for your help.
All the best,
