If it is just cable i bet they offer a manual override, say a screw in bolt to keep it engaged ??? May be worth a look

Transmission just about done. The reverse and countershaft assemblies are in . Mains shaft is rebuilt and going in this weekend. The counter shaft with its 42 of 66 loose (uncaged) bearings with two thrust washers probably tested my skills more than I ever want to be again. Any one have "Special Tool J-1296482 ? Me neither ! But two 16mm outside and a 14 and two 15s in between them make up the special tool required ! In case you need one :) FjR68
