While my car is apart, I figured I'd post up a quick tutorial on how to adjust the rods on your factory 4 speed shifter. First thing is you need either the plastic Hurst tool or a 1/4 drill bit. Next you'll need to get under the car and put the shifter into neutral. This is what factory linkage looks like- If you look at the shifter mech, you'll see a 1/4" hole at the bottom. This is where the tool or the drill bit gets inserted. The tool lines up all the shifter levers in the mechanism. And a pic of the tool in the shifter. Naturally, this shifter is adjusted so the tool fits. If your shifter is out of adjustment, you may need to loosen up the adjuster nuts on the rods to get the tool installed. And a picture of the nuts loosened up on the rod. Make sure the trans levers are all in neutral as well. Now with the trans in neutral and the shifter itself in neutral, adjust the nuts against the trunion on the rods and tighten them up making sure you tighten then up evenly on both sides Do the same procedure for the 1-2 rod, the 3-4 rod and the reverse rod. And dont forget to take the tool or the drill bit out!! Your done!
