I'm assuming you're talking about the positioning of the shifter lever. The lever has a large bolt through it. Take the bolt completely out and pull the lever off the splined shaft. Reposition the lever where you want it, push it back on the shaft, and reinstall the bolt. I hope this is what you wanted to know, Good Luck, Steve

How to adjust the column shifter on a 1951 chevy deluxe car


Hello Jeff Poe,

Assuming you are talking about the MANUAL TRANSMISSION... simply because of the "FASTWAY" product you are posted under... (appears to be the old "three on the tree") column shifter.

And

Assuming ALL your shift bushings are new & firm
You can have an assistant find and hold the neutral
(fully disengaged... but middle of the "H" position)

In the car: Have your assistant select the first & reverse positons. Under the vehicle: Carefully observe the throw in each direction.

Underneath at the transmission shift lever: Pull the cotter-pin and remove the washer from 1st (1st & reverse) gear shift lever.

Manually operate the shift lever to feel the exact center of its disengaged position (after assuring your assistant is holding the shift lever in the middle of the lever throw... adjust the lever to lengthen or shorten to precisely match that centered position.
If the vehicle has been used... very little adjustment should be required. Place the pivot pin, restore the washer and fit a new cotter-pin.

Repeat the process for the 2nd (2nd & 3rd) gear shift lever.

Hope this helps.

My 2004 1500 Vulcan Nomad will not stay in gear 2nd thru 4th gears? It started off as a momentary thing where when I went from 1st to 2nd it would go into a false neutral. now it won't stay in gear at all...


Always start with the easy (read cheap) stuff first. Make sure that the clutch is fully disengaging when in gear and engine running. If bike 'clunks' and lurches forward as soon as you shift into any gear, it may simply be that your clutch needs to be bled and/or adjusted so that you are fully engaging/disengaging the gear. More likely, however, the shift lever was subjected to a heavy foot resulting in the shift fork being bent. This prevents full engagement of the gear resulting in it popping out under load. Unfortunately, this repair requires a teardown. Continued operation with the tranny popping out of gear will round off the shift dogs and create an even more very expensive repair.

I have a 1998 z24 cavaler, while i was driving i put the car into 2nd to downshift because i was turning, as i put it into 3rd the shifter felt like it was broke and it does not want to go into 1st 2nd...


Hi...your problem is usually caused by the ****** shift linkage being stuck in two gears at the same time which can sometimes happen from shifting out of sequence. In order to fix this you need to get under the vehicle and manually shift one of the trannys linkage levers into a different position to free it so you will be able to shift normally once again. NOTE: Be extremely careful when working under the vehicle and take every precaution to ensure your safety first and foremost!

MY RAV4 KEEPS JUMPING OUT OF 5TH GEAR


worn gearbox or engine mounts allowing the gearbox to move and unlatch the shift linkage from its position, or the shift linkage is mal-adjusted and not properly engaged in 5th gear at all.

There may be a knuckle joint that can be adjusted to give correct shifter operation, it may be out of adjustment. GM cars are prone to this after reversing uphill in a manual car, your Nissan may be similar. The engine moves away from the area of the shift lever and pulls the knuckle joint out further than it is supposed to be and causes the gears not to enage securely any more.
