      I think the bushings are going, on my 83 4 sp. The shifter is getting sloppy and finding first is getting to be a challenge. However when the car is cold the shifting is fine I have looked at the Bentley and the diagrams for the shifter linkage, bushings etc are kinda vague looking. could someone post a better diagram? I really don't want to mess it up. It's a daily driver. Which bushing kit?
      Thanks [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      You can find a shift linkage diagram on my web page:

      The 4 and 5 speed bushing kits are pretty much the same, but if you replace the two plastic tipped levers also (#'s 60 and 55, below), you need to get the two for the 4 speed, not the 5 speed.
      4 speed linkage ("save" this now for future reference):

      On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the most difficult, I would say that the replacement of shifter bushings is about 1.5 on the pain scale.
      Cheers, WWR.

      it's easy as pie - just go slow, don't yank it all apart at once.
      I just did the linkage on the Captain's 16v, took all of about 1 hour (even with the usual dinking around)...

      Also, forgot to mention, always remeber that if you change the "lever" as shown on the above diagram, which is a metal piece with a rubber ball on the end, you need to get the one for the four speed, which is slightly longer that the 5-speed one.
