SHIFTER BRACKET BUSHING INFO
WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?
Notice how this fool attached the shifter bracket to his transmission by using some flat washers instead of the proper bushings.
THE PROBLEMS THIS WILL CAUSE
When the bracket is bolted on like this the bracket is not being held on center. This causes the shifter cables to be in the wrong position and will cause the transmission to not shift correctly.
THE PROPER BUSHING FOR THE JOB
The correct way to attach the bracket to the transmission is to use the factory bushing, part # MD723290 and cost $2.10 each. You will need 4 of them.
WHAT THIS BUSHING DOES FOR YOU
The bushing takes up the space in the bracket, holding the bracket concentric to the bolts that go into the case.
WHY YOU NEED THEM
These bushings are what holds the bracket in the proper position so that your shifter cables will be in where they need to be so your transmission will shift correctly.
