Individual results may vary. I have had friends with older transmissions that utilize this style who have described shifting issues to me. I have told them to replace that part if they find it is worn out, they have, and they report back that it shifter better afterwards. Give it a shot, and let us know your experience.

Mine showed no noticeable difference in shifting. However, it got rid of the up and down slop I had. But it's almost not noticeable.

I ordered mine yesterday along with a new bushing for the end of the shift knob. I saw that there was metal on metal contact as well. You can kind of see it where there lip is on the side.

I received my parts today and installed them and I noticed a little slop in the shifter disappeared. It also moves a bit easier when moving it around. I should have ordered a new shift tower boot but when I looked at mine it seemed OK. Looked at it today and it was torn on the inner creases. So I'll get a new one.

For about $12 shipped I think it's a repair worth doing. After I discovered it I noticed the metal on metal action of my shifter on the shift tower so it at least puts my mind at ease.

I got mine from transtar, the original came out in about 60 pieces. No noticeable difference in shifting movement but it was smoother. I did this during a synchro change. Hope this helps, Ron

I am working on mine now. Should I lightly grease the ball when I stick it back in? Seriously.

Sure, it does get splashed with gear lube while it is place, but won't hurt to pre-lube it when you install.

I was having the same problem , and wow what a difference!!

Edit: fixed my reverse problem and tightened up the shifting, but I'm still getting some grind in 1st to 2nd. Going to try and bleed the slave and hope for the best.

Have you ever run across a vendor that might sell the shift tower? The pins in mine are sloppy and causes the shifter to rotate about 1/4 turn when shifting. I also believe this is what is causing issues finding 1st gear. That and the clutch mast cyl needs some work.

I'd look on ebay, buy one used. Note that there are several different versions though. I haven't figured them all out.
