Do you have the write-up on fixing the sloppy shifter? I thought it was you who took pix.

Brian, sorry for the delay, Dennis is correct, I am in Surfside Beach SC, just got Inet access here.
The shifter fix is written up in the repair manual.
Couple of different options.
The fix I did was a bit different and involved creating a "short shifter" while I had it apart.
This is an EA81 we are talking about correct?
If so the pivot bushings for the bottom of the shifter are just as, if not more, important as taking the slop out of the barrel that connects the linkage to the tranny.
These parts are still available for about 10 bucks from Subaru.
Email me if you need more detail.
