Re: Rebuilding Toploader Shifter

I have 2 old ford magazine articles that show how to rebuild a toploader shifter. Do you have any old archived ford mags you can flick thru?

I can sympathise, that without any instructions it would complete pain to reassemble.

You can buy rebuild kits from rare spares. Tip (common break items): There's a curly wire spring with 2 prongs that holds the shifter steady in neutral. Make sure neither of the prongs are broken (makes the shifter VERY sloppy). There's a flat metal "U shape" spring that you have to push the shifter thru to find reverse. Again, make sure the prongs aren't broken - can make it easy to grab reverse when down shifting!

Cheers, and may the "Lego" force be with you!

No problemo!! I don't have a scanner (living in the stone age), but I'll scan it at my brother's place today or I'll get it done on Monday at work at the latest!

Cheers

Re: Rebuilding Toploader Shifter

G'Day DavO,

I sent you the scanned shifter article twice, but it didn't go into my "sent items". Just checking that you received it OK?

Cheers
