Old ZF5 loose shifter

I swaped out my auto for a ZF last year and have no previous experience with this trans. I had it rebuilt due to worn out syncros. The shifter has always been loose but it is getting worse. It does still have the spring tension in it but is quite weak. The shifter has 3-4" of play in it in every gear in every position. Any one know how to fix this? I am thinking it is the part the stick attaches to because you can easily tell nothing is moving inside of the trans. The trans shift great does not fall out of gear or do anything strange...just has a bunch of play in the stick. The only issue is it makes it a little awkward to downshift because it is so loose.

Thanks.

Re: Old ZF5 loose shifter

shifter rebuild kit?




The whole thing rides inside two nylon bushings
I used this kit when I installed my rebuilt zf5, nice and tight shifter, easy to find the gears

Thanks. I ordered that and the pivot bushing. Hope that fixes it up!
