Question about 1985 Ford Merkur XR4Ti
My gear shifter begins shaking at 50 mph and over so that i cant drive over 50.does any one have any idea what it can be
It's most likely the drive shaft bearing which is in the center of the shaft mounted to the car. You can get a new one from Rapido and your problem could be solved. May want to consider looking at resolving the issue soon as the vibration will raise havoc with the drive train. A remote issue could be in the rear end itself whereby if someone drove the car most of it's life lugging the gears (standard transmission) the rear end gears tend to prematurely give out causing a similar condition. Best result is to simply find a new rear end at a salvage yard, just the center pod and replace. Good luck!
