Post subject: trans wont go into 1st or second

I was accelerating hard on the on ramp and it wouldnt go into 3rd then wouldn't go into any gear so I coasted beck up the next off ramp and by the time I got to the top 3rd 4th and 5th worked but no 1st or 2nd. limped home with those but still not 1st or second, I do have reverse though as I discovered parking. Any ideas I will check the selector rod in the morning which im hoping it is. but any ideas? anyone had this issue before?

Sounds like a busted transmission mount to me.

G260s have a few weak points. That said, the 885 head has been known to have an effect on the shifting fork when selecting first and second. Even more that said, I'd look at the linkage. Also possible you have a bent selector rod among other things.

got under there tonight and used my phone to look at the selector shaft while shifting. I have some play ( to be expected worn bushings and clips and such) but all there all functioning no dents or breaks in the linkage. I am beginning to lean toward towards selector fork. I am bummed though trans looked brand new like freshly cleaned and painted like it was re manufactured when i got it 3 months ago. I think I am going to have to take it to bo...
