Re: popeyepcb1 volvo ms gear

Might be slop in the shift cable, shift fork or bearings in the trans. The shift cones are on a spiral spline, as soon as the cones start to drag, it grabs and pulls it into gear (foreward or reverse). You might try idling the engine down more before shifting.
Another thing to look out for, the shift fork is in a depression on the top or the trans, under the water pump">raw water pump on a MD11. If water gets on it, it has nowhere to go but into the trans and make a rusty mess out of things. Speaking from experience.

One or two throttle system? i have two and they can interact with each other. sounds more like fine tuning throttle/gear cables to take up slack.
