What you just spoke of (fork) had been mentioned also before by a friend who owns a dealership. He described it as a horshoe type part.
When the truck was working, and all gears engaging, there was no noice coming from the tranny that we noticed.
It really was all of the sudden, it hadnt been slipping, sticking, nothing. Just all the sudden went to drive it and backed up. Wouldnt engage. At that point, we put another shifter in (from junk yard) the metal rings on the back of the ball were busted up. This is when it seemed to work fine for a lil more then a week.
When it started up again, we took it to the shop that did the clutch/slave cylinder. They checked it and replaced the boot and some bushings. We drove it home, approx 20 minutes to home, parked it. Approx 2 hours after parking it, the same issue started again.
We have checked the tranny fluid and replenished it.
