No the pin in each side is to keep the gear stick from turning when shifting gear. So far as I can remember their is a nylon screw around the gear stick which hold's it in. Be sure to put it in neutral before you try to remove the stick. Hope this helps

97 nissan quest will not move when in gear and the vehicle is rolling freely when in park. ....suggestions? Grinding sound when in gear and the drive shift on the driver side is spinning free


Well, there's a Pin that holds the transmission gears in place when you've got the car in park. This Pin blocks the gearbox from moving... either the pin isn't fully engaging the gearbox, or it's just broken.
If it's not engaging, it's just a question of adjusting the shifter linkage. That can be fixed relatively quickly.

However, the accompanying grinding sounds really make it sound like it's broken.

I installed a new clutch and cant get 5th or reverse.


remove gear stick and check its in properly, if you removed the gear shifter quadrant box bolted to top of gearbox you more than likely put it in while a gear was selected, remove and make sure gear box selectors are all lined up in nuetral then refit quadrant box and then gear lever.

Dual gate Hurst shifter adjustment


Hello! Here is what I was able to track down:

Hurst Dual Gate Shifter Assembly Parts Breakdown:

Removing & Replacing The Hurst Dual/Gate
1. Disconnect car battery.

2. Remove Knob. Remove four Phillips head screws that hold escutcheon plate down to console.
NOTE: SHORT SCREW IS USED IN REAR RIGHT - HAND HOLE. Remove escutcheon plate and console from floor tunnel.

3. Lift selector indicator lamp housing out of shifter and pull bulb socket out of lamp housing. Disconnect wire connectors from combination Back - up light / Neutral safety switch.

4. Remove two 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex-head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to rear mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex - head cap screw that holds cable bracket to shifter frame. Remove two #10 - 32 x 3/8 slotted head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to front bracket. Free shifter from cable by removing cotter pin and washer.

5. Remove combination Neutral - safety / and Back - up light switch. Install switch on Replacement unit.

6. Install replacement shifter unit in reverse order of removal of original unit.

7. ADJUST CABLE: SEE FIGURE 1 (Below)
Loosen nut that fastens cable pin to transmission control arm. Loosen nut enough to allow pin to slide in the slot in the arm. Turn the arm to NEUTRAL position. Move the stick to NEUTRAL. Tighten the adjusting nut. Test movement of stick and check to be sure that stick positions agree with transmission control operation.

8. SEE FIGURE 2 (Below)
Connect car battery. Apply hand brake. Move stick to NEUTR AL position. Press foot on brake pedal. Start engine. If starter fails to operate, Neutral Safety switch must be adjusted. Adjustment is made with a long-bladed Phillips screwdriver through the "Street" gate. This screw is directly in front of the st ick. Turn the screw about 1/2 turn past the point where starter operates. (STICK MUST REMAIN IN "NEUTRAL" WHILE ADJUSTMENT IS MADE). Starter should operate ONLY when stick is in PARK or NEUTRAL position.

Transmission for a 1978 Ford F100


The transmission should have the label "FMX" upon the center lower drivers side of the body. This was Ford's largest and heaviest tranny they ever made for commercial(privately owned) trucks.They only produced this model for 8 years.

2001 Saturn SL Manual Transmission stuck in 2nd Gear


I had this same problem with my 1998 SL2 after about 170,000 miles. There is a plastic bushing at the end of the shifter cable that holds the cable to the shifter - it probably broke. Remove the center console inside the car to access the bottom of the shifter. I checked my local Saturn dealer to find the replacement cables (come as a set) are more than $200. So I went to Lowes and bought a beam clamp and a large washer to hold the cable to the shifter. It has been working fine for more than 28,000 miles and cost less than $3
