Sloppy shifter had to go, late night maintenance ensued. Already had the plastic bushings and solid base bushings on hand, so why not. My original intentions were going to be to wait for the brass bushing kit from @Gsx-Dude to show up. After some consideration and knowing that shipping could take a month, I decided replacing the missing plastic bushings was necessary to ovoid the occasional gear grind.

The slop was unreal, bad enough that you’d have to go searching for a gear every now and then. found out 4 bushings we’re missing, glad I bought 6. Everything went smooth and was fairly straightforward. Shifts are much much better. Now just the occasional clunk into 3rd happens. Feels like it’s in the shifter assembly and not a gear clunk. Further investigation will happen after the brass kit shows up.

The chrome trim had to go. You know, the stick on trim. I think it was the OEM trim but who knows. Regardless, it had to go. The top clear layer or clear coat was peeling/flaking off. A few hours with some goo gone and some scrapers went a long way. Will be looking into options for plugging up those openings where the ends of the trim slide into.

Couple of photos of the assembly after replacing the bushing and a generous application of grease in the places that could use it. Base over haul will happen when everything comes back out for the brass kit install.

Old and busted trim vs clean channels with no trim.
