83 240D 4spd shift linkage problem

The 1 2 selector at the tranny has a lot of play like the shift fork is worn out or there used to be a bushing on it possable lose linkage inside trans? Has any one had one apart do you need a jig like a volkswagon.

VW transmission jig, that brings back old memories. I remember the first one I did, installed it back into the car and it jumped out of second gear. I though I could adjust the sliding forks by eye.

I removed that transmission 3 times before I go right. After that eye opening experience I bought a used transmission case and made I own jig

If you can not find a fork, use a brass brazing rod to build up the worn spots on the fork. Grind it until you have a perfect fit. I still have cars out there running strong with my custom made forks.

fixed it

Looked at it again to see what it was going to take to get it out and was playing with the shiftlever and thought may be theres a bolt in that hole where the lever goes in to the tranny sure enought allen head bolt holding on shift lever was lose just like new now.
