Look at the picture. The screws at trhe pivot point should control how much friction is in the shifter to hold it wear you place it.

Revtech 5 speed tranny. Transmision some times will get stuck in inbtween 5th gear and 4th gear, I would have to try and shift up and down from 5th to 4th, 4th to 5th and some times it would shift down on...


Sounds more like a shifter pawl problem. I'm not familiar with the RevTech tranny but it should be very similar to the original H-D tranny. The shifter pawl has to be adjusted so that it's got equal travel in both directions. If you're trying to adjust it. Put the tranny in neutral. Now lift the shifter lever until you feel the pawl engage the pin in the shifter drum. Then go back to the middle of the movement range and depress the shift lever until you feel the pawl contact the other pin. The lever should move about the same distance in each direction. If not, the shifter pawl needs to be adjusted. On some bikes, it take some special tools to be able to get to the adjuster. The adjuster is on the left side just in front of the lever that connects to the shifter pawl shaft sticking out of the transmission.

How to adjust transmission shifter dial in dashboard


To adjust the shifter you will need to reise the truck and support the front with jackstands. Block the rear tires. Slide under the truck and look at the shifting rod coming from the steering column. Loosen the the lock screw on the adjustment swivel. Pull bback on the shifting rod and hold pressure on rod while tighting the lock screw. This should take care of the problem. Remember if the shifting rod does not slide freely then clean it off before trying to adjust. Hope this will help you.

How to use thumb shifters on a 21 speed Schwinn Highplains bike


OK, for a beginner in the world of 18 speed bikes, put the chain on the big sprocket up front, it should be about 46 teeth, make sure it is center and doesn't make noise, if it does, adjust it just a hair either way, now, the rear, put the chain on the big sprocket in the rear, make sure the front didn't start making noise, if it did, adjust it again. You are now ready to take off, in low gear, as you start out, it is easy to pedal, soon you will be peddling air, shift into second gear in the rear only, don't touch the front. Just a little push with the thumb will make it shift, now were going faster, easy peddling, shift into 3rd, then 4th, etc, coming to a stop, down shift the back sprocket back into low gear (big sprocket) and be ready to take off again. Soon you will be shifting that thing like a Ferrari! The front sprocket, will be used for moderate terrain, wheelies, and mountain climbing, that will come later, learn how to shift the rear first. As each gear climaxes, hit the shifter, it will get smoother as you go, and keep the chain quiet, no climbing on the next sprocket or falling out of gear. Hope this helps.

How do I locate the ignition switch and remove it from my gmc sierra 1991 ignition switch


The ignition switch is located on the top of the steering column underneath the dash.

1. Remove the cover panel from under the steering column and you should see the bracket that holds up the steering column, but before you un-bolt the bracket to lower the steering column, you must remove the clip holding the shifter position indicator cable to the column. (put the shifter into drive and you should be able to see the screw that holds the shift indicator cable adjusting clip to the steering column)

2. Remove the bracket holding up the steering column and carefully let the steering column down as far as it will go, the steering wheel will probably be resting on the seat.

3. You should now be able to see the ignition switch on the top of the steering column, and the two mounting bolts. The high beam switch might share the upper ignition switch bolt, and you will then need to remove the high beam switch before you can remove the ignition switch.

4. Remove the ignition switch mounting bolts (usually 5/16 but I have also seen 11/32 and 3/8 size bolt heads used)

5. Remove the ignition switch by lifting straight up from the column to dis-engage the interlink rod from the ignition tumbler assembly, you should then be able to pull the ignition over towards you just enough to dis-connect the two wire connectors to the switch and then you can remove the old switch from the vehicle. (the interlink rod is sticking straight up from the steering column and it slides up and down with the operation of the key, it fits into a notch in the ignition switch and that is what actuates the switch)

6. Reverse procedure to install new switch, starting with re-connecting the wire connectors and be sure that the interlink rod goes into the notch in the ignition switch.

7. When the switch has been re-installed and is ready to be adjusted, turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position and hold the key in that position and slide the ignition switch up and down until it is in the on position and your dash lights come on, tighten up the ignition switch mounting bolts and then test the operation of the switch, and re-adjust if necessary until the switch operates properly.

8. Adjust the high beam switch by pulling back on the high beam lever and just taking up the slack in the actuator rod to the high beam switch, test the operation of the high beam switch and re-adjust if necessary.

9. When the steering column is bolted back up, re-attach and adjust the shifter position indicator by placing the shifter in neutral and slide the adjusting cable clip until the shift indicator is pointing in the neutral position, test the function of the shift indicator and adjust as necessary.

2008 Chevy Cobalt - care is running, but I can't turn it off! Go to park, try and move the key and it won't move to the off position to turn off the car


replace the shifter assembly.I replace alot of them.use this bulletin as a reference.Subject: Various Concerns With Shifter and/or Ignition Key (Replace Shifter Assembly/Shifter Components or Ignition Lock Cylinder )


Models: 2005-2008 Chevrolet Cobalt

2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit (Canada Only)

2007 Pontiac G5

with Automatic Transmission 4T45-E (RPO MN5)

Some customers may comment on any of the following concerns:

• The shifter is hard to move or binds.

• They cannot remove the ignition key.

• It takes high effort to rotate the key.

Cause 1
The shifter button may be sticking in the handle.

Cause 2




The pin that activates the micro-switch may have moved out of position (refer to illustration above). This causes the micro-switch to fail to engage when the vehicle is placed in Park. If this condition is present, the customer will not be able to remove the key from the ignition.





The illustration above shows the switch in a correct position.

Cause 3
Metal flashing left in the cylinder may cause a high effort to rotate the key.

Cause 4
The slider may be binding in the guides. This may cause the shifter to become difficult to operate.

Correction 1
Verify that the shifter button is inoperative by evaluating if the park pawl pin on the shifter assembly moves when activating the button. If the parking pawl does not move when the button is activated, the shifter handle will have to be replaced. Refer to Floor Shifter Control Knob Replacement in SI.

Correction 2
Important: A change has been made to the shifter assembly for service. The replacement shifter assembly will read PRNDIL (Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, Intermediate and Low).

Verify that the micro switch is out of position. Replace the shifter assembly. Refer to Transmission Control Replacement in SI.

Correction 3
Important: Refer to instruction sheet that is supplied with the lock cylinder kit. BO 47869 is an essential staking tool and must be used for the repair.

Replace the ignition lock cylinder. Refer to Ignition Lock Cylinder Replacement in SI.

Correction 4
Replace the slide indicator and guides in the shifter following the procedure below:

Apply the parking brake.
Remove the upper console trim. Refer to Trim Plate Replacement-Console Front in SI.
Remove shifter knob. Refer to Floor Shifter Control Knob Replacement in SI.
Remove the indicator plate. Use a flat-bladed screwdriver to release the locking tabs.
Remove the shifter indicator lens.
Pull up on the indicator and remove it from the assembly.
Remove the two front rails by unsnapping the front and lifting up, and then back, to remove the rails from the shifter assembly.
Install the new guides. Place the hook end into the assembly and push down. It will snap into place.
Install the new slide indicator. With the transmission in neutral, place the slide over the shifter and into the guides. Move the slide indicator down the guides in the front and rear.
Important: Replace the shifter indicator lens if damage is present due to the slider binding or if it becomes damaged during disassembly.

Install the shift indicator lens.
Install the shift indicator plate.
Install the shifter knob. Refer to Floor Shifter Control Knob Replacement in SI.
Install the upper console trim. Refer to Trim Plate Replacement-Console Front in SI. post back with what you find.

I recently swapped my tranny. its a super t 10 4 speed, it worked fine when i pulled it from the 1980 camaro, iput it in my other 1980 and now my transmission wont go in any of the gears, it will go into...


Did you adjust the shift rods from the shifter to the trans shift arms. Take your shift rods loose and put shifter in neutral, and transmission arms in neutral, then adjust the rods so they slide in. Then your shifter matches your transmission and you should be able to shift just fine.
