I've got a bit of a strange problem with my A+ series gearbox.
To give some background, I recently replaced all bearings, layshaft and new genuine rover baulk rings. All seemed ok whilst the gearbox was seperated from the block albeit the gears being a little tight to turn. I put this down to the new baulk rings.
Connected it all up and now, it feels like it's in gear when you try to push the car when it's in neutral and clutch released. If the clutch is depressed, it seems better but it's hit and miss as to what gears I can engage until I move the car i.e. it goes into 1st, 3rd, 4th and reverse but not in 2nd. If I release the clutch and try pushing it whilst in neutral, there is some resistance (as though it's in gear) but will then allow me to select 1st, 2nd, 4th and reverse but not 3rd and so on.
With the engine running, gearbox in neutral and clutch pedal pressed down, seems to run fine apart from not being able to engage all gears as above. If I release the clutch, still in neutral, there is some resistance resulting in idle speed drop and the engine cuts out unless I keep the revs up.
Stuck it into 1st and tried driving and although it jolted to start with, it ran ok after a short while. Almost as though the baulk rings had bedded in. However,when I tried to change up to second, I got gear crunch and refusal to go into gear. If I try driving it in reverse, I have to up the revs and it jolts/kangaroos although this has also eased and is starting to run smoother but not much. In addition to this, there seems to be a knocking noise when I try to drive it.
Any help/advice/pointers into what the problem could be will be much appreciated as i don't want to drive her on the belief it is just the baulk rings needing to bed in.
