Re: [DML] Broken pivot bolt

Hi Mark,
When I read your comment below, I was wondering what side of the bed you got up on, till I got to the last line.
Yes it was the pivot bolt that broke in the shift linkage. I had spoken with the service manager, telling him that the linkage was out of adjustment because sometimes it just would not go into 1st & 2nd gears after coming to a stop. Their answer was to get an adjustable clutch link. I figured that they knew what they were talking about. They didn't. It broke on the GSP coming out of a toll plaza. Made up a make shift one from a bolt & a piece of brake line so that I could shift it and put it in the garage. No vendors had any at that time, not even Kpac so I ended up getting a replacement through the company that I worked for and their tech dept. I put it in and adjusted the cable about 1/16 th of an inch and have never had a problem since.
