Gearshift Tower Overhaul on the Model A Sport Coupe – Part 2

Posted by

After removing the shift tower from the car (see Part 1) I took the it over to see John Cochran and we got a good look at what was quite a bit of wear in the lever  and the selector forks, which I hope is the source of my 2/3 shift issue.

In this video we discuss the wear in the components

Step by step pictures of the assembly as much as I could take whilst actually assisting!

We replaced the shift lever, the selector forks and inspected all the other components were found to be serviceable. The worn detent bullet you can see in the pictures is from an old gearbox and is being used for comparison only.

As you can see we used the special tool to ensure we didn’t get taken out by the famous “killer spring”

Thanks to John Cochran for his assistance as always

Now to get the tower reinstalled and see if it improves the 2/3 shift.
