Vette(s): Numbers matching 1972 350 4 speed, silver pewter body with blue interior
The thing don't like shifting...any kind of shifting. Engine off is resistant, engine running...same story. All gears. No grinding...just hard to push into the gates. Fluid level is up. It's not synchros....been there done that. So, I'll make up a linkage lock tool at the shop tomorrow. Can this be done with the trans in the car?
My Christmas present to ME! Bought Sat 11-30-2013. 72, 350 4 spd, Silver with blue interior...Can't you just hear Pablo Cruz playing in the background?
Vette(s): 1972 conv, 4-speed, 350, 200hp, numbers match, rally wheels, war bonnett yellow w/white top. good condition, nice driver.
I made mine out of a piece of conduit strap. It was the exact width I needed. If your car is like mine, it's best to take the exaust OUT. I had mine on a lift where I could sit on a creeper and work at it. Get someone with small hands and LOTS of patience. It would be best to have a set of hands on top/in the vehicle to hold the guage in the slot, and have the other set under the car to adjust the linkage. It's a tedious job, but may be your ticket to smooth shifting. After changing the shifter and adjusting mine, I am a firm believer that the RE-BUILT 4 speed has something wrong in the syncro area. 1st gear is always a pain on start-up, but the others are smooth after that. Go slow!
