Man you must be rough on that thing [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]. My tranny has close to 200K on it and still has the original bolt in it (knock on wood).
I think it was Sarge that said that he came up with a better way to set up the shifter. Maybe he will se this and help you out.

I have seen on ebay, a shifter bolt that is made out of a tougher metal than the factory bolt so it doesn't break. That may be an option.

Send a PM to Sarge on this forum.

He may have a beefier solution than a stonger bolt...

Re: Shifter bolt , sloppy

I'm running a "dual guide pin" shifter setup. The original one was drilled/tapped to accept the late model larger bolt and a new hole was drilled/tapped 180 degrees from that to accept the early (smaller) bolt. A groove was then machined in the shifter to accept the new smaller bolt and the original groove was machined for the larger bolt. I'm not sure if Sarge does this, but it makes for precise shifting and I'm very happy with this setup......

Re: Shifter bolt , sloppy

I do just that . Using two stock style bolts to prevent heavy wear on the ball itself , and a new groove machined into the front , with a second hole tapped in the housing . They are a serious pain to build , but last a whole lot longer . This is only for the earlier model shifter towers that use one 8mm locator bolt in the rear of the housing .
