Im looking for everything, the pieces the cables clip onto, and the piece that bolts to the transmission itself

The Lever that the bellcrank attaches to is discontinued. Everything else is available. You may be able to replace just the bushings and firm things up a bit. Is the metal actually worn down?
You can use these numbers on our site for pricing and to order.

That piece you think is part of the linkage is a bushing that is replaceable. The wear item comes off. Actually you could be a total cheapass and just pull it off and rotate it 45 degrees and the 2 edges that werent on wear sides will now be on wear sides.

I dont feel bad telling you to do this, because Tracy and Aaron (when Aaron was still there) would tell you nifty tricks like that to save you some money.

Thanks luni. I took her off n spun the "sugar cube" :p. but it didn't help ... My problem seems to be the part that bolts to the trans is worn out. Allowing the cube to pop out of its lil slotted home, and go off on its own :(

Ooorrr.. The cube has worn alot and lost its height allowing it to go under ? But the one on the trans looks worn to me

So I heated up the cube bracket n gave it a slight upward bend ... Seems to work for now. The cube stays in the slot and my shifter isn't as sloppy

Thanks Luni- totally forgot that little bastard part. It is pretty cheap and the part number is 90389-10009 but you can rotate it and get some more miles out of it.
