    Just some really real armchair ideas, to hopefully sort out where the problem sits:
    Have you disconnected the remote control connection from the engine and tried if gearshifts work when operating it directly on the engine/gearbox? In case that works, at least you now know where to hunt for the problem. If the gearshift does not work with direct operation on the gearbox, I guess the gearbox has to come out...

    Does anyone have an understanding of the MS gearbox fitted to the Volvo MD11C engine.  The old Volvo engine is fine but I have an issue with the gearbox being reluctant to change from ahead to neutral.  I have to go from ahead to astern and I can the go into neutral.  Any Ideas
