Transmission shift lever

Posted by Lindsay Dent on August 26, 2014 at 12:48pm 8 Comments

My shift lever has a lot of play in it. I found that the lever on the shaft which enters the transmission is the problem. The picture in the manual (fig 10A-38) shows the shaft and lever as one assembly. My lever moves (rotates some) on the shaft and has been welded at some point which is not holding now.

Anybody had any experience with this problem? My question is can I pull this shaft after dropping the pan and have it welded or is there more to it than I see?

Thanks for any…
