t150 trans shifter removal

I need to remove the shifter so I can remove the trans. I'm not sure if the dome cap screws on or is pressed on. I thought I would ask you guys before I hack something. thx

That cap screws on with the normal right hand thread...

Yes it does. It's also under a bit of spring pressure which makes it feel like it doesn't want to turn.

Here's a link to the 1976 FSM. The chapter on the transmission is still correct. Chapter 6: http://oljeep.com/gw/76_tsm/Section6.pdf

+2 Use a pipe wrench or channel locks to unscrew it. Most importantly, don't lose the slugs that act as a pivot point for the shifter. Here's a shot of the T-150 with the shifter dome removed and the shift lever pulled out. You can just make out the notches where the slugs fit on either side.
