Adjusting Hand Shift

The hand shift normally requires adjustment only to compensate for wear or when transmission has been moved. Only the shifter rod needs adjustment to maintain correct hand shift lever position.

To adjust hand shift move the shifting lever to third position on four-speed transmissions and to second position on three-speed transmissions.

Disconnect shifter rod from shifter lever; with slight backward and forward movement carefully "feel" the transmission lever into exact position where the shifter spring plunger (inside transmission) seats fully in its retaining notch.

By turning the clevis in or out, carefully refit the shifter rod to the shifting lever without disturbing the shifting lever's exact positioning.
