Anybody ever buy the rebuild kit for the 5spd super coupe? I got the kit but the directions suck and im not sure how to go about installing said kit. Any help or detailed instructions would be great!! Thanks.
I literally just ordered 3 of these kits a day ago.
I did this rebuild on a shifter many years ago with OEM parts (no kit was available) and back then you had to cut one of the cups/sockets in half in order to install it...that's unless you wanted to press a metal pin out. Is that still the case with this dorman kit?
I don't recall having to cut any cups with the dorman kit -- they slipped right on as needed.
The only thing I needed to do was drill the right hole pattern for mounting.
Wow that was pretty easy. Except the hole pattern is way off!!! Not even close to right. But that was simple to fix i am a machinist and have my own machine. So i made slots instead of holes. Cant believe the difference with how it shifts. When i pulled it apart there was absolutely no sign of the top or bottom bushing!!!! Well thanks for the insight guys.
