[DML] Re: Std. Trans Linkage & Hard 1st Gear

There are 2 washers/spacers that hold the pivot on the bolt. You may
have to either file one or both of the spacers or shim the bolt so the
pivot can move freely with the pivot bolt tightened up. I would take
the whole thing apart, clean, lubricate, and reassemble. You may find
you do not even have the right hardware in the first place! Refer to
F:07:02 Fig 43 in the Workshop Manual. You really shouldn't need
Locktite, that is what the locking nut is for. Too tight and you can
snap the pivot bolt. It is supposed to be threaded into the frame and
the nut just locks it. Do not leave it loose so the pivot can move
freely. The pivot should move freely even with the bolt tight. There
is no specific torque spec for the bolt. Snug so it doesn't move is
good. Besides, it is difficult to get a torque wrench in there!

bolt.  I tightened the bolt and it became very hard to shift.  When I
loosened the bolt a little, it worked better.  I was wondering, is
there a torque spec on this bolt?  Should I put locktite on the bolt
to prevent it from coming loose again?
