Hi Greg


 


Is the part called "shift shaft seal" NATIONAL Part # XXXXX ??


 


I guess there's also a circlip needed to attach the cable to the gearbox / transmission. If so do you know the size and part number so I can get that too.


It may be difficult to get that size here in the UK


 


Many thanks

Hi .

Dave can you send me a photo where this part is fitted .

I can send you a drawing but I'm having trouble inserting it into this mail.


The ring on the end of the shift cable is about the size of a quarter and the shaft that comes out of the gearbox has a pin about 1/4".


 


So the rubber grommet is a tight fit in the ring on the end of the cable with a 1/4" hole to fit over the pin. Then there's a steel washer and circlip to hole it all in place.


There's a shaft for 5 forward gears and another for reverse I'd guess.


 


I may not have the details right, but that's the overall arrangement. I'd guess the rubber grommet is there to isolate the shift cable and shift stick from gearbox noise and vibration.


 


I've tried a few parts sites, but none of them go down to this level of detail:-(. The good news is this manual transmission shift cable was used on many Chrysler models from 1982 to 2002

Hi Greg


 


No. It's the rubber grommet that fits in the ring at the end of the shift cable at the gearbox.


Is there another e-mail address I can send my drawing to, because for some reason this site keeps telling me I'm not authorised on the server when ever I try to attach a jpeg ?

Hi Greg.


 


I don't think this clip is the parts I need.


 


Note my opening statement "Where can I find the part number for the rubber boot and circlip that hold the forward and reverse shifter / remote control cables onto the gear box of my 1991 LeBaron 3L V6 with manual transmission?"


 


My drawing shows the two cables coming off the internal shift stick that terminate onto the two shafts coming out of the gearbox. The large ring on the end of the cable is about the size of a quarter BUT the pin it sits over is about 1/4". The rubber grommet has an outside dia. of about a quarter and an inside dia of about a 1/4".


This grommet fits inside the large ring on the end of the cable and pushes over the 1/4" pin. A steel washer and a circlip then keep it in place. The interval shift stick is thereby insulated from the noise and vibration coming off the gear box. Without the grommet the large ring on the end of the cable would be too large to fit onto the 1/4" pin


 


Let me know if this is not clear to you.


Cheers

Hi Dave .

Okay get back to me when you know if they can help you or not .

Personally i would have this part fabricated out of an old car tyre wall, and use two larger washers on each side so it does not slip out the ring.
