shifter loose?


Recommended Posts

After approx 600 miles since we purchased our SGT I now notice some movement in the shifter.. it moves about 1.5 inches forward and back no matter what gear I am in.. there is no side to side movement at all. To be honest I've been enjoying driving this so much I can't really say if it was different 600 miles ago. It still shifts fine just the movement back and forth..any opinions?

At lunch break I decided to take a look. Pulled the (leatherette) boot up and then the rubber boot under that. The looseness is NOT in the gearbox it is in the beam of the shifter under the the boot collar. I didn't see any obvious way to pull the collar off the shifter.. any ideas?

Log in to Team Shelby, look at upper right corner for "search" and type in "loose shifter". You will get a bunch of info. Shifter topic has been covered a lot over the past 7 or 8 years. I have an automatic so I don't have any manual shift issues. Good Luck.

Item 3 you said get 2 9/16 wrenches.

item 4 you said tighten both 3/8 nuts?

 

Typo?.....anyway the tightening was what to do but just snugly. Also you may want to apply a bit of locktite to keep from having to do it again soon. Doing so will keep you from having to fool with your nuts too often........or if you like fooling with your nuts often then skip the locktite......
