My AEC Regal, HHP755, has a preselector gearbox. After the AEC Rally at Newark (29 May), the Regal drove home without any problems. However, upon arrival at our yard, the coach became jammed in top gear. We have looked into it to some extent, but since we are not too well acquainted with the preselector box, we would appreciate any possible assistance. Can you help?

Hi Claymore78

if the gearbox is a Wilson pre select looking a bit like the attached picture. Then you should be able to put a spanner on the square that sticks out the side, and push downwards, this should knock the gearbox out of gear

Hi Railcar, appreciate the pointer. However, ours is not a Wilson. Not sure which make, other than the AEC badge on the top plate.
