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!

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

Rebuilding 3.03 shifter???

Hi, I know this is an older post but I have a toploader 3 speed, matched with a 302, with a lot of play in the shifter and cant find a diagram or guide for rebuilding it anywhere? Is this an aftermarket shifter?
