If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

Sorry Ross, no turnbuckle on that shaft. The other two that do the shifting have one. I figure something worn. Not sure why it should be, by all accounts and info I have on my car, the 34000 miles is correct. I'll try the alignment procedure and see if the linkage is out of whack and put the whack back in. The engine in my car is said to have been rebuilt, and I believe this to be correct by what I see. So, I think there could be a possibility that when things were put back together, the linkage geometry could have been compromised.

Thanks for that Ross. I will have a look at it. But, unless it's labeled which is the 1 R.

Haven't noticed any wear in the rods, bushings or the idler ass'y support, but will look again. I was thinking the issue may be at the bottom of the column. I just haven't formulated a plan of attack. Thanks for the suggestions.

Would this be a good thing for me to try? Mine likes to jam on me every once in a while. 90% of the time, it shifts great. When it messes up, it gets stuck when I shifting from first to second. I have it almost down to a science and usually can get it unstuck without having to stop. If not, I get pulled over, shut it off and move the center (Canadian spelling ) lever to the middle position. Or do I have another issue. Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks for that Troy. Much appreciated. Looks simple enough. On a side note, I like your quote. I'm dealing with one of those.

Decal Assistance Needed

Hello all. I have bought some decals for under the hood of my car and they are called a water transfer. I've searched for instructions on how this is done, but I'm not finding anything that makes sense. Could someone please shed some light(Layman's terms...LOL) on how this is done.. Thanks!

Hi All. Different axle shafts, (ones damaged), changing rear gearing from 4.1 to 3.9, engine flush, hope to repair my heater core. And between all that, drive it somewhere, don't care where, just drive it.

Re: 49 Axle shaft

OK....here are the axle seals. First picture shows the modern seals and the part numbers. The one on the left is the inner seal and the other is the outer seal. Next two pictures show the original inner seal. It got a bit beat up getting it out. The second picture is the inside of the seal. The next picture shows the outer leather seal in the holder and one out. The next picture shows how the outer seal is retained in the housing. There are 4 of the small bumps that hold the metal ring that is the keeper for the leather seal and the next picture shows the bumps with the retainer and leather ring removed. To allow the modern seal to be pressed in to the housing, I had to flatten out the bumps, shown in the next two pictures. I used a small drift punch, gently clamped the housing in my vice and dollied the bump until flat. I then used some pieces of metal, squared the seal to the housing and gently pressed the seal in to the housing using my vice as a press, shown in the next picture. The last three pictures show the modern outer seal pressed in to the housing. I have not installed the inner seals as this is in preparation to installing a 3.9 gear set out of a spare rear axle in to my car and installing a better axle, as I have one that has a damaged taper.
