OMARS67 Messed with the tranny today and notice that the shift nob had came a little loose tighten it down and bingo !!!! Problem solve thanks fellas

tjet If the shifter is in netural, the linkage arms should be in netural. It's easy to see once you pop the rod off.

The prob I had was that pilot brg ID was tight on the input shaft.

How is the clutch adjustment? How much free play?

OMARS67 Yeah I replaced the pilot and throw out bearing. Should I disconnect the reverse first befor the other gears. Didn't think I had too being I didn't remove the tranny or linkage.

tjet When I did the clutch on my '71 Vette, I had to disconnect & remove the shifter, but it's a Hurst.

Put it in netural, & disconnect the linkage at the trans. If the linkage on the trans moves or spings to the detent when the linkage rod is disconnected, the linkage will need to be adjusted.

Did you replace the input shaft pilot bearing too? Some are too small

OMARS67 Didn't think I had too never disconnected anything on the tranny

tjet Did you try disconnecting the linkage to see if it's adjusted properly?
