out of where it goes???

OUCH!!!!! You didn't say what year your Jeep is. If it is pre 76, the frame rail bracket is adjustable. loosten the bolts and slide it closer to the engine. On all years, check to ensure the bellcrank and bushings are servicable and properly installed. also, check the motor mounts. If one is broken, the motor will rotate and the linkage can fall apart.

sorry guys for the lack of details. i have a 79 cj7 with a 304 and its a 3spd. i dont know what the name of the place where it is poping out of but you said rotation cup. that may be it its it pops out where linkage meets the peice that goes into the tranny. i hope that will help.
