    Hi I have laycock tr6 J type gear box, trying to turn the main shaft but it turns slightly either way then stops against something. I can take out of gear and spin the propshaft end but main shaft again is locked. Put in gear can't turn propshsft end and can feel the movement on mainshaft but no turn. Have overdrive fitted, also had top plate off all looks good. Is it the overdrive unit stopping this via a clutch and how do I release cheers.????
