Hello and Welcome..My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise.If you have disconnected the selector rods and they now move free and ok - and as you say the shaft that goes through into the gearbox operates the selector train / changes the gears... and evidently the fault lies there.It sounds like a cracked / fractured cog / ring / gear which will stop it solid - stop it selecting..or a broken selector inside... either way, its a strip down of the transmission Im afraid..

I asked u some questions regarding how to get at the gearbox on Fiat f100

Expert:  Mike replied 1 year ago.
Hello again -Thank you for your reply.. Im sorry , I was busy with another.Strictly this is a whole new question -you would need to re list for help on that. But in general, you would need to remove all the panelling - over the engine / gearbox etc - then its a case of splitting the tractor unit in half as you work to remove the gearbox.. This has to be done to allow the gearbox to come away from the engine... you see the idea.If its not the sort of work you are used to doing - I woudl strongly recommend you get help with this from someone who has done this before... its very heavy work and you do need a good set of tools and working knowledge to do it to be honest with you.
