First of all...good luck with that problem...I had the same thing happen last summer. Those covers are freeze plugs and you can knock them right out with a screw driver...dont worry about damage because you can get the plugs at any auto parts store.

It's a tricky little job getting everything put back together...as you will probably see... After going thru all of the trouble of re-building I found it did'nt help much. May be I did something wrong or there was another problem...I dont know...the "balls" of the shifter were in very good shape.

After a lot of headache and time I decided to exchange the shifter with one I found at a local bone yard that shifted fine. (Got lucky here as it was obviously recently re-built.) Cost me only $25 with the exchange.

The elves that put these things together in the first place must have been powerfull magical creatures...I wholeheartidly agree!

Good luck,

Thanks for the help (also,thanks Dave in Ontario). I managed to remove the freeze plugs and get it to work. Reinstallation on the transmission was brutal. Most of the day spent trying to see what I was lining up. I finally drained the transmission and set the shift up in reverse gear to get it to work.

I do notice that the shifter lever will need a little beefing. Thanks again for the help!!!

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
