    Issues installting brass T56 isolator cup bushing on trans shift selector

    Sunday night car emergency... Mechanic has the car on a lift and the trans out and can't get this bushing to fit. He said it fits into the pocket in the trans itself, but doesn't appear to fit over the ball end of the shift selector itself. The original B&M shifter thread on LS1 mentioned a few taps from a hammer. Anyone else have experience installing this bushing? bronze_shifter_bushing.jpg

    Take a dremel and shave off some of the rim

    The cup fits into the trans, which modifying the rim is supposed to help. Our issue is the cup fitting over the ball end of the shift selector itself

    Oh my bad - the ball of my uuc shifter fit inside of the cup for me. I recall seeing late in one of those long shifter threads that others had the same issue with the cup and they got it to fit with a little grease and tapping - http://ls1tech.com/forums/cadillac-c...m-shifter.html

    The shifter itself does not attach to that piece. That goes inside the trans.

    Just picked the car up and drove home. Shifter went from a sloppy mess to a stiff mess shifter won't return to neutral position on its own, left/right. Hoping the cup tolerance is just overly tight and that with some wear, things will loosen up.

    Sounds like the bolt at the end of the shift lever is to tight.

    just came back in from the garage testing that theory. Even with the bolt removed, side to side movement was still too heavy. I'm really beginning to dislike his car. One step forwards, two steps back.

    Bringing this back from the dead. Did this ever wear in? I bought a bronze shift cup and have the same issue. I had a shop install it when the rebuilt the trans. You would think they would have been like hey this isn't right but whatever. I just bought another one from Tick so hopefully it will fit the shift ball better. Problem now is it seems they hammered it in too. I'm going to try and thread a tap in it and knock it out with a slide hammer
