    Hi Andy,

    It is a ground strap that attaches the RH front fender to the RH A-post finisher (100674). It attaches to a screw in the finisher under the weatherstripping. You can see the same loose...

    Yes, it is a view looking up. I guess the opinion here is that it doesn't help with reverse, but since you are having issues with first, try adjusting it backwards just until first is easier. You can...

    Hi Greg,

    When I finished my clutch job, my crossover cable needed some fine adjustments to return normal shifting in the gears. Initially, I was having the same problems as you with shifting into...

    Hi Rob,

    In addition to what Dave suggests, if you still can't get it to grab (vertically), try adjusting the 2 bump stops on the lower cover. I had to do both of these things and play around with...

    My money is on this cause. Mine was loose, and I discovered that it was missing the foam weatherstripping (108632). The lack of foam allowed the finisher's metal tabs to click against the SS...
