I've recently bought an 05 R and had the problem with the shift cable linkage this weekend, and came upon this thread and this site. It looks like the shift cable repair kit is what I need.

Is that kit still available and if so how much?

My SSR:
RastaWoodStock Born 2005 Unit # 16781. Grew up in Nashville & adopted 2015 and I drove her to Texas.
Stressed out
So since I have been full time RV'ing, been having too much fun to worry about my R. Other than watching and waxing her every other day or so.
I had the dreaded auto shift cable dilemma: (

So before actually doing the right thing and search the forum, I went O'Rielly's (first mistake)
Got a $8 package of misc crap, none of were the correct piece. Finally went to a real store (Napa) and ordered the $12 piece. Drove over to a near by Shop and the put it on a lift and installed the cheap plastic for free and said, why don't you just bring it back next week and for $75 We can fix it the right way. (Drill out and install #10 but and dual locking nuts)

Well I woke up and decided to check to see who already came of with fix and low and behold Mr. Dicktor has the solution.

Oh BTW, burnt my left while doing my temporary "Gorilla Tape" fix.

At 53 I am still learning.

Ordered the real fix today - Thanks folks !!

Shop said "Drill out and install #10 bolt and dual locking nuts".

This will NOT work! Well, not work right.

Using locking Nut on both sides, the Lock Nut closes to tranny will STOP you from shifting into LOW gear.

Been there, done that!

That is why there is "button" stainless bolt on Repair Kit and mounted toward tranny.

You can send a PM to Dictator and he will happily ship one to you. You can PayPal him....

Dick also provides the repair kits to me and I sell them in my web store. You can order one there and use PayPal or a credit card. Here's the link: Transmission Shift Lever Repair Kit

Either way, Dick is the person who builds the part.....

Best Regards,

A couple of days ago I got my goodie bag from Mike and yesterday I had the shifter cable fixed, the heat shield installed and the new radiator brace installed. So i figure I am good to go for a while. I will get a new radiator fan in the Fall when I am back in Southern CA. I must have paid over 30 % duty and taxes on my stuff. The UPS guy said the duties to Canada were crazy.

John,

I NEVER use UPS for shipments into Canada. If I am shipping large parts, I have them shipped to my broker's US address, and have him do the import. If parts are fairly small, I have them shipped US Postal, and let the postal system deal with import charges.

There should be no duty on US manufactured products, and in Alberta, 5% tax. If you check the invoice, I think you'll find the rest to be UPS service charges for brokerage
.

I imported $150 US in parts ($204 Canadian) last night through US postal. Canada Post charged 9.95, paid 10.20 GST. In BC, also have the priviledge of paying PST.

DrRock, Do you haul your SSR around in a trailer as you are a full time RVer ? I spend a lot of time travelling in my coach and I am thinking of getting an open car hauler so I can go to some of these gatherings. Maybe next year.

Dicktator, my shift cable broke in the driveway, the transmission end. I used my own parts to repair. I used a 1/4-20 allen bolt, an aluminum spacer, two washers, and a nylon locknut. After reassembly, the shifter know will not go all the way into park. I think the car thinks it is in park, because it will start. Is it possible that I need to adjust the length of the shift cable with that spring contraption on the end? If so, how would I need to proceed with that?
Thanks,

Brent Crumbley

Yes, cable linkage is out of adjustment, probably you moved cable to shift arm, a NO NO, Cable must stay in position while installing Shift Cable Repair Kit.

And make sure shift arm has ORANGE DOT OUT!

On my SSR How to Library, FREE!

Also Shift Cable Adjustment.

Hi Dick, on my way down near Nov to Ocala, do you have a garage as I think replace with Stainless Steel shift kit would be wise & shield cat converter.
