Got a 2008 F150 on my new to me Ribeye 650S. I took it out at the weekend for the first time a couple of weekends ago and had the following symptons:
1.) Wouldn't always go into forward gear and would end up revving in neutral. It would sometimes take 3 to 4 goes before it went into gear
2.) Always went into reverse with no problems
3.) Would notice this sympton especially after I had just been in reverse
4.) Engine is running fine apart from this sympton
So I think the cause to this is one of the following:
1.) Gear cable is not adjusted correctly
2.) As a noob I am try to be gentle and have been very slow and careful pushing the lever forward into forward gear. From looking at the forums and manuals it states that it should be put into gear quickly and firmly.
3.) There is some safety feature where gear is not engaged as prop is still spinning or the engine is revving to high in idle. Don't think its this as I am getting reverse every time.
4.) Fast idle / neutral is been activated by accident. Again not sure its this as I don't think there is a fast idle.
Has anybody got any suggestions please before I talk to the stealers in the morning
