Thumbs down Shift linkage

Has anyone had the bolt that connects the shifter bar to the tranny break? The bolt has either broken or vibrated off twice for me Since I put the tranny in. Right now I have another bolt in there with some red thread locker. Just wondering if it happened to anyone else?

Re: Shifter Bolt Problem

Duner, what you did ,should hold up fine.
By using the red tread locker, the parts may have to be heated up the next time ,in order to take them apart if ness.
In areas where you don't have that option, try using the blue type thread locker instead.
Try using a lube product called Fuild Film on all areas of the shifter linkage, to prevent binding or breakage. (your local TSC outlet store stocks it)
