With out seeing it all I can tell ya is to make sure you do not have a bent shift fork,,, how to tell is to place it in neutral and make sure all the gates in the shift rails line dead nuts up,,, all the shift collars are dead nuts in the middle on the shafts... John Smith has good info on this and his advice would be good as gold...

This is about hanging up in 2 gears its basic info that should be looked at on any trans repair as bent worn parts are hard to see unless you have good parts to compair the shift forks to even then its difficult to see ...

First pix in this post 1&3 shift fork was bent
Reverse and 2/4 shift rail aligned dead nuts

1/3 shift rail forward out of alignment is the issue..

Did you have reverse idler gear out :?:

How does the end of the shifter look (trans end)

No I did not have the reverse idler out, but someone previously could have. As far as sticking in two gears I am not sure that is the problem, but possible. If I jack the tractor tires off of the ground, and put in reverse, then it does not lock up. It only seams to do it when on the ground backing up. It also doesn't do it right away. I might back up 5-10 feet and then it does it. As my friend is cheap I only replaced the broken gear.

I agree with you whole heartedly that those things need to be looked at during a transmission rebuild. And it is great infomation to offer. I also appreciate the added links which might also be my problem. I would like to thank you for replying to my question as I was very stumped. Now I have some information on where to look.
