I just bought a TREK bike with SHIMANO shifter/brake combination. The bike may be 10-15 years old (not certain). The shifters move but do not engage the cable. What should I do?

With a bike this old the best thing is too take the bike into your local bike shop and have them give it a once over to look for any potential problems. THIS IS A FREE SERVICE ALL SHOPS OFFER.

The problem specific could be as simple as the cable is very loose and not engaging the cable, or the cable could be so old that it is frozen inside the housing and nothing is happening. It could also be that the cable is broken, the shifter is broken or something other. It is impossible to diagnosis this particular problem with certainty without actually seeing and feeling the issue.

Bottom Line: Take it into a shop and get a mechanic to look at it.

The shifter moves 9 clicks, but the travel is only enough for 7 sprocket clicks

Shift into the highest gear and then release the shifter cable at the derailleur (it is clamped with an allen [hex] bolt). Pull the cable as tight as you can and re-clamp the cable. You should be all set now. The cable stretches over time and needs to be adjusted.

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.

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.


Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!
