First off in all honesty, this is for my K1500 but I wanted to post up here as I see a lot of people have 241's and this forum is so full of knowledgeable people i hope to get an answer.
Pulled the 241 in anticipation of changing out my transmission. Tried soaking the horizontal bolt/nut that comes out on the left side, is keyed, and holds the shift rod to the case. I sheared the bolt off.
I know the 100% correct way of doing it would be to order the part (which numerous drive train shops don't seem to have), but I don't want to get in over my head with reassembly and I'm on a very tight budget.
I've considered JB welding or really welding a new stud on, apply washers as/if necessary, since it's only a retainer to hold the shift rod on the key.
Has anybody ever sheared this off, and what would be a recommended fix?
