Default 5 sp won't shift

98 dodge, cummins, nv4500
Trans was working just fine other a little sticky going into reverse. I parked the truck, came back minutes later, started up and tried to put it in reverse. It would not go in. It would not go into any gear, shifter moves side to side but will not go front or back even with the engine shut off. I removed the shift lever and the 5th reverse gate seems to be about 1/4 inch back further than the other two gates. I removed the pto covers but can't see anything wrong. Any ideas short of removing trans?

Drop transmission. Remove the top cover sounds like the shift fork is busted.

I once lost a roll pin that held 3/4 shift fork on a shaft... Still had to remove the transmission to replace a $0.30 part. I was able to get the truck out of 3 and 4... drove it 1000 miles home on 1st, 2nd, and 5th. If you can get it out of gear.. may be able to move it.

I just wanted to thank everyone for their input, I fixed the problem. The snapring that holds fifth gear to the counter shaft broke. I did not have to pull the tranny, just the transfer case and rear of transmission. Standard transmission in Texas had the parts I needed.

I am glad that you were able to get it fixed without having to tear it all the way down! And if just the snap ring hopefully parts and labor didn't take a huge toll. Now that it's all said and done, are we allowed to poke a little fun, because when I read about removing the pto covers the immediate thought in my head was Alan Jackson's song "where I come from"...

I was chasin' sun on 101
Somewhere around Ventura
I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger
This tall lady stopped and asked
If I had plans for dinner
Said no thanks ma'am, back home
We like the girls that sing soprano.

All kidding aside, I'm glad you have it back and running. I once had someone install a clutch plate backwards on a car I owned, and the only thing grabbing were the bolts. It worked for a couple weeks until the bolts finally grinded down...but I was able to move it in and out of gear/neutral.
