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.:thumbs
