It was getting hard to get it into 1st gear. Removed the boot and found the flange is broken in two. Need to get the shifter out of the way to replace the flange. Now 2nd and 4th are very hard to hit. Thanks.

    Please, where and what is the pin you are referring to? I only see a small bolt clamp at the base of the chrome shifter. Thank you your.mechanic. David Sas
