Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

You can still buy a new 3rd gear for your 5 speed. This site sells it for around $165. To verify you need this new gear you ll want to remove the top of the transmission, drain the tranny oil and get a diagram, a flashlight, and maybe a mirror. You may want to put the shifter back on and watch the action as you shift in and out of third gear. The wear on 3rd gear will be exposed as you shift the collar across to Reverse. The shift collar might be worn but I don t think it s available. Even so, a new third gear will last a long time.
I believe that the replacement can be done by only splitting behind the tranny. I replaced mine with trans completely removed. Get the right book and follow it; there aren t any shortcuts. No special tools are required but there s nothing easy about this job. Take good pics of the internal shift rods before you disassemble it; the book isn t too clear.
Good luck,

It finally warmed up a little here in NY and I pulled the top cover off the transmission and put the shifter back on. Everything looks good. What should I look for? The gears look fine. Someone also said there could be too much play somewhere.

Joel thanks for the advice. I will get a book to help me. I have repaired several manual truck and car transmissions over the years but never did internal work on a tractor transmission.
