Question about 1981 Ford F 150
Have new ford boot for mazda type tranny 5speed. How to install? Old boot just had outer boot with foam insert. New one has inner and outer boot with inner boot hole too small to fit over gear shift. Have gear shifter knob off, looks like I have to remove handle off gear shifter stem. How does this handle come off? Has hole under shifter knob, Is this key to removal? Is there a bolt of some kind in here? Can turn handle slightly does not feel pressed on or threaded on ,if so how is this handle attached by what kind of bolt and what size?
Try the following : " Remove the four screws that mount the shift boot to the floorboard. Pull the boot up out
of the way (It cannot be removed over the shift knob). remove the four bolts that mount the inner shift boot to the
floorboard (there are two on top and two on the side.) Carefully pull the inner boot up through the hole in the carpeting
and out of the way. Remove the bolt that mounts the shift lever to the transfer case shift linkage. Remove the shift lever from the linkage. Slide both shift boots off the bottom of the shift lever. It may be necessary to lubricate the shift lever to remove the inner boot."
