Yes, hopefully. No promises.So hypothetically speaking, I can jockey the pawl back in the right location?

I just changed the oil, but I will see if I can't get it cracked open tonight! I just found this thread, and on the second page, it seems that he was able to put the pin back in it's place (https://www.vn750.com/forum/26-transmission-rear-end/10507-shifter-stuck-neutral.html). I have not bought the Calmyer's (spelling) book yet, but I downloaded the shop manual and the owner's manual. I will see if this information is in one of those two places. Unfortunately, there were no photos taken of the post where this guy fixed the same problem rather easily, with no additional parts.Wait, wait ... Stop. I told you wrong about pulling the engine and stator case. Section 8-20 of the download manual... There's a shift cover with four bolts, but it says to pull the bevel gear first. No need to pull the engine to see the shift pawl.
Going back in this thread to edit.

In this thread, the original post, it was stuck in neutral and wouldn't shift to 1st, then the internal rod broke later.
