Downshifting into 3RD...
Posted 21 February 2004 - 09:04 PM
I can shift from 2nd to 3rd relativly easy, but if im downshifting from 4th to 3rd, sometimes it wont grab and the tranny will slip out of gear, which usually ends up grinding until i can grab the shifter and slam it back into 3rd again. Is this pre-mature tranny meltdown? The car is a slug in 4th gear, been thinking of doing something about it. Not sure if I wanna do the whole 5spd deal, but I would like to get 3rd gear back.

how much clearance do you have between the shifter and the radio? in my Dad's wagon, if you shift lightly into 3rd, it'll instantly pop back out, but if you shift sold and hold it in third until your foot is totally off the pedal, it stays.... he's put 40k on it that way so far.....

The fabrication I sent you, does not "shorten the shifter"
It shortens the throw of the shifter.
i.e. how far the shifter moves between shifts
Which in this case, may help
My Brat had the same problem

I was looking at it on my EA82 and I think one could cut 3 inches off the stick and then rethread the stick

let me know if we could get together and do these.
I'd rather find a 5speed, but I do have this trans sitting here.
