single rail potential problems??

gonna buy a ZL fairlane in a few days (possibly) - yaeh i know but i love em and it's got dragways and has been well maintained, etc...

the guy has dropped in a reasonably good 4sp from an XF, except there are two problems that I need a bit more info about before i bother sending it over the pits...

1) extension housing has a slight leak, heard it's pretty easy to replace the bushing? if it is thoroughly cleaned, etc before the inspection would it still pass or would it need to be looked at ASAP?

2) The shifter has a bit of lateral play, it was shimmed up too much so the guy calmed it down so to speak, but it occasionally makes 3->4 shifts a bit hard if you're not careful. Problem??

thanks guys

...someone give me a steep hill
