CLEANING, INSPECTION AND REPAIR (Figure 4-15)

Clean all parts except gaskets in solvent.

Inspect all parts for cracks, bent parts and any wear that would impair their function. If the holes in any pivoting parts are elongated, replace the part. Inspect all springs. Compare them to new parts if possible and replace any that appear weak or worn.

Inspect the neutral indicator switch (5). Depress the plunger and release it. Plunger should spring back. If the plunger sticks or binds, replace the switch.

ASSEMBLING SHIFTER COVER (Figure 4-15)

Assembly is the reverse of disassembly with the following exceptions:

Lubricate springs (31) with grease. Lubricate internal parts with motor oil. Before installing plug (17), run a bead of Seal All sealant around the lip. Secure the plug in place by striking it sharply in the center with a ball peen hammer.
