Re: T5 Shift Problems

Well for now I adjusted the clutch pedal and so far, so good. I didn't get a lot of driving time, but it definitely shifted better Thanks to all

Re: T5 Shift Problems

That is true! I'm hoping it's a simple adjustment of that linkage.

Re: T5 Shift Problems

It's a needle bearing which I removed the factory grease and used a hi temp grease. The same grease I used in the throw out bearing.

Re: T5 Shift Problems

Pony do you know what would cause a condition like that? I installed a new pilot bearing about a year ago.
Thank you

Re: T5 Shift Problems

JSeery, I install a close ratio aftermarket shifter. I don't know if it has stops or not though. Thanks for your response

Re: T5 Shift Problems

That's a good possibility Ross. When I pull the motor, I'll take a look

Re: T5 Shift Problems

Yes Ron. I believe it was Dextron that was supplied by the shop that rebuilt the trans about 5 years ago. The clutch and pressure plate are about a year old
Thanks

Re: T5 Shift Problems

Mike, the adjustment would be in the "linkage" that goes from the pedal to the master cylinder and also on the slave cylinder ram to the cross shaft arm
Thank you

Re: T5 Shift Problems

Ponymare, I'll be pulling the motor in a few weeks to install a fresh 8BA. That would be the best time for me to check that out. I did install a new pilot bearing about 1500 miles ago. If that's the...

T5 Shift Problems

After some stop and go driving the other day(about an hour), I noticed it was getting difficult to shift into 1st gear. 2nd gear was also getting stiffer, although not as much. Fluid should be fine,...

Re: Oil Pan Question?

Weld it up! This is not going a show car, so I'm not concerned about the correctness. I need this pan to clear the steering linkage.
As always, thanks to Gary!!

Re: Shop led lighting

Guys, he's not talking about 4' fluorescent tubes. He's talking about Metal Halide.
I mentioned 240 volts because some people wire them that way because they'll run at half the amperage as 120 volt...

Re: Shop led lighting

You can save yourself some money by just replacing the lamp. You will have to wire the socket directly with 120/240 voltage you have at the fixture. You leave all the wiring for the ballast, starter,...

1937-40 Steering Bracket

I'm pulling the motor to install a fresh bullet in my coupe this fall. I've heard that changing the steering box bracket from the original 35 to the 37-40 may give a little extra clearance for...

Re: Air/Fuel Meter/gauge

It's best to follow the manufactures specs. They all ask for something a little different.
Only one is needed.

Re: Air/Fuel Meter/gauge

I have a A/F gauge in my coupe. They're very easy to install, but you need a welder or a buddy that will weld in the bung for you. For a blown motor, it's crucial to have the right air/fuel mix

Re: Bellhousing indexing

Ronnie, is there dowels on the back of the 8BA block? I'm not familiar with that and I don't have one to look at. Thanks, Joe

Bellhousing indexing
