Also - for the record I wasn't the guy who invented this method, but I seem to have taken the best picture of it (that I have seen anyway)... hehe

There are NO parts required other than an 8mm bolt and nut with some washers, and the nylon bushing if you need to replace it.
This works ONLY on 4 speed 4WD transmissions from the Gen 2 cars (and the 81 GL Brat).

GD i got a question: Is the hole at the pivit point in the gear stick meant to be heaps bigger then the shank on the bolt that goes thru it?
Cause this is where all the "up and down sloppiness" in mine comes from. And where you said there would be a split pin the is a bolt but i supose the previous owner didnot cut it when he did it.

Or are you talking about the rubber and nylon bits on the shackle that connects the shift rod with the stick? Only thing I've ever done with that is tighten the HELL out of it. I suppose one could get new bushings and rubber for it, but tightening it up is usually all it takes.... The hole IS heaps bigger if you don't have the rubber in there like you should..... maybe you have a broken rubber? Or did you just forget your rubber?
As for the bolt, yeah the previous owner did that probably. The stock setup is two roll pins - one inside the other (no clue why this was done?!?), held in by a special cotter pin with a flange on one end.... weird little guy. Anyway - just chuck all that junk and get an 8mm bolt for that part...
The 2WD ones - yeah, you can replace them by pulling up the console. Not hard at all. As for syncro's, you can try some redline gear oil - it helps some people.... but the only real fix is a new (used) or rebuilt tranny. Once they go, they are history as they are made from brass.
