Changing Shift Boot help removing old knob
I am replacing the old worn shift boot on my YJ the owner before me (who had no idea what he was doing to anything on this machine) glued the shift knob to the stick. i dont want to replace the entire stick. Would Grinding it off compromise the integrity of the shaft. or are there any solvents or anything that remove epoxy or glue. i have tried heating up where the epoxy is and removing the knob but no hope.
IMO grinding would compromise the integrity of its structure. Any time you add a joint somewhere, it is a potential place of weakness. I would grab a larger set of channel locks, and a cheater bar. Set the channel locks to a size that lets the handles come close to touching together, or preferably touching. Slide the cheater bar on the end and pull like hell.
