Double check the tensioner, make sure its not flopping around its slot
I'll certainly take a closer look at this before I close everything up.Double check the tensioner, make sure its not flopping around its slot
Not from what I can tell. The whole gear was rotated, but doesn't look like the "adjustment for the gear" moved at all.The adjustable cam gear didnt slip on the exhaust side did it?
Shift change assembly? Detent balls? Broken/fouled linkage? It's something in the trans. The clutch doesn't have anything to do with the side to side motion of the linkage. That only involves the shift change assembly, the linkage, and the detents.
I hate failures that aren't incremental. No way to plan for them or be ready. I know it's counter to my Boy Scout training, but part of being prepared is knowing what's coming.I used the transmission I got with the motor swap, which is probably where I screwed up. Stretched and stripped threads should have been my first clue. I admit shifting felt "notchy", but not terrible... it hit all of a sudden this morning with it being so damn stuff.
I doubt it will. Just jack it up and play. If you pop the linkage off of the change rod, you should be able to stick a screwdriver in the ***** pin hole and shift by hand from underneath. If you can't, drop the trans and swap your old one back in, do not wait.I'll probably end up pulling that one down, and swapping with the one that was originally in my car... This assumes nothing under the car jumps out and yells "Hey dumbass" when I get under it at the end of the week.
Color is fine. Sometimes these old beasts act squirrely on us. We have the right to ***** and moan when they do.Sorry for the extra "color" in these posts, but the last 4-6 weeks with this car have been kicking my ass.
Nope, just what's above. Good luck.If anyone has any other suggestions, I am all ears.
