Shift Cable Repair

Jeff, (Jeffanatic) called me this AM, said his R would not shift out of reverse, lever would move but trans stayed in reverse.

I said I thought it was shift cable, it was.

When I got to Jeff's house he had found "transmission shift cable broke!" We repaired the cable w/some improvements, at least we think so.

Now available from Mike Moro Web Site: Maintenance & Repair Parts - OR JimBob,

OR ME! [email protected]/[email protected]

Pictures:
1. Ground rivet head off shift arm.
2. How assembled
3. Kit installed, looks like this and will not fall off.
4. This is OEM neoprene insert that holds your shifter on.
5. Neoprene crumbles from 1800 degree catalytic converter 3" away.

That same cable broke on my 'R' when I was in a parking lot. Hat to push out of the 3rd story of the lot, hauled then fixed. Another weak spot? John Matson

Mike, As a mater of fact, Jeff said "Mike should make a kit or repair kit for this fix".

I agreed, glad you picked up on it.

I would like 10 kits at Dicktator's Garage in Florida.

Let me know when you can ship.

OP, Hadn't really thought about it. I do know I have to change bolt length to 1 1/4" . And I have to check to see if the 03/04 is the same as the 05/06 linkage.
Most likely it is.
Cost? Parts in SS are kinda high. I was about $4.50 in parts. Maybe two bucks for mailing. Plus label, envelope, etc.
I would be comfortable at $10 bucks including mailing.
What do you think?

That looks like a nice fix for someone who does not want to go to the trouble and expense of a new shift cable and it's requisite installation. The only issue I see is that if you ever do want to go back with the stock cable, you will need to replace the shift arm as well. The shift arms are fairly plentiful around here, so if anybody would need one to go back to stock, we can dig one up for them. I applaud you on your imagination and engineering Dick, having one of those little set ups in the glove box could save someones bacon when they are stranded in BFE and can't get a cable.

There was no modification to the cable, if it broke the replacement cable would still fit the modified shift arm. As far a repairing on the road, you`ll need to be able to either drill out or grind off the connecting tab on the arm.

Dick, that was excellent engineering and problem solving skill. Glad that you are on the Florida Chapter and so close to our R (relatively speaking).

Just follow through with MnMs Toy's post, would it not be wise to check the existing shift cable condition (on an auto) and replace if needed? And, could that be done visually?

Any hoo, please put us on the list for one set, Dick.

Thanks.

Dick, can you tell me how close to the pan the locknut comes? The picture makes it look like it's close to the pan flange, where it rolls up around the perimeter, but the view might be deceptive.

To answer Hai Hai's question:

I would say, next time on a lift for oil change, CHECK THE CAM/RUBBER CLIP.

On the transmission end, the arm has a square hole, held on w/15mm nut. We removed the nut and arm, then ground of the head of the Cam that was pressed into the shift arm. The Cam, as the picture shows has the rubber clip that holds it into the shift cable.

The "Fix" you see in the picture is in the Park position. It never touches the Transmission at any point. We were concerned about that happening. As you shift from Park to Neutral, ect. the "Fix" gets further away from the Transmission.

Pictures:
1. Changed from Hex Head to "Button Head" bolt to avoid the transmission.
2. Button head goes to the transmission side.
3. Assemble layout.
4. Arm with pin and square hole on arm
5. DO NOT REMOVE CABLE, just gentle "pry" the cable from the arm. (See picture #2.)
