View Full Version : Shifter Boot - 4 Speed

Anybody got a good idea on how to get the rubber shifter boot on my 4 speed without having to take the whole thing apart and bring it from the bottom. Just need to get it over the reverse lock out ring at the top.

Welp, guess no body else out there has a 4 speed? Thanks anyway. I'll do the best I can at this point. Have tried WD-40, vaseline etc. no luck without splitting the rubber boot and that just won't work.

The only way I know is to remove the pin that holds the reverse ring onto the shifter. But, when you that, it's a pain to get the wire that pin holds inside the shifter hooked back up. If you go to that trouble, you might as well replace the rubber shifter bushings that rot with age, it will make a big difference in the quality of the shifter. Ther rebuild kit costs $16.00 at NPD
