Re: Hot Shot pops out of gear
Good info EXCEPT for: "Also cork plug at left rear of cover that held additional spring and detent ball [for 2-3 rail] probably fell out. Tap hole for 3/8ths-24. Blow out chips. Use set screw with lock nut to hold in spring and detent ball, both should be as close to 11/32nds dia. as possible with spring around 3/8ths long and pretty stout. Screw in set screw or bolt till snug then back off till 2-3 rail can move and lock with nut. Had 48 that needed this fix. Seb."
The original Crosley shifter, never had a ball and spring, under the "cork plug". That was there just to keep dirt out.
The only detents were the 1 spring and 2 poppets, located between the two shift rails.

Here are some solution from awhile back. First things to check are the spring loaded poppets in the top of the transmission
