Hi all,

This is the the shift lever out of my truck. I want to replace the old rubber seal, but I'm not sure how to take this apart without damaging it. The ball that sits inside the transmission has a slot, but there is nothing to grab the top part with. Also, I don't think it is wise to use the transmission to hold the bottom while trying to remove the top with something like a pipe wrench. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Well that was super easy!!! Thanks Earl, glad I ran into you online again. I did all of the stuff under the shift boot. That red Florida truck is a joy, but the smell of transmission oil was getting to me:) Now for the radiator. I bought one from Rock Auto, but like everything under the hood these days, it's plastic. You think having the OG one repaired is worth it? A/C condenser is leaking too. There is a shop that repairs them, but again, do you think they would patch one hole only to have another show up. I tried to buy the condenser from Rock Auto, but the two they have have been out of stock for a while.

Got it Earl, sent mine back thanks.

Cusser, thanks for the info. I'll throw that crappy plastic one in for now. Probably last the rest of my life anyway as I don't commute with this truck. And yeah, I'll see if the shop can fix the condenser. They do "antique" radiators and a/c stuff over there. Guess I'm driving an antique. Happy that parts are available from the dealer though. I'd have been in trouble with the transmission if the parts under the shift boot were NLA.

Speaking of parts, for anyone doing this to an 86 - 93 4X4, you will need:
M513-17-480A BOOT DUST $60.91 (2 needed)
UC86-64-481 INSULATOR $32.38
UC86-64-482 INSULATOR $19.03

My truck was a well maintained Florida truck so if all those pars were gone, I'd imagine every truck needs this treatment. Get 'em while you can!
