Hurst 4sp Shifter Slop
Long post with backstory, hopefully someone can provide some insight:
Have a 1967 GTO with an M21 and a hurst shifter. We recently got the car back on the road after spinning a rod bearing. Car sat for three years waiting for our mechanic to get excited about rebuilding the 400.....
Anyway, one of the things I've noticed now that we're putting some miles on it is how stiff everything is. Clutch feels different with a shorter contact patch, brakes need to be bled/inspected, etc. One thing that was incredibly apparent was how difficult it was to shift between gears, especially getting the shifter over into reverse. I had to lean on the shifter just to get it to come over to reverse, and the effort between gears was substantial.
And one day, going into reverse, something clicked/snapped, and now the shifter is all over the place. Does this sounds like it's as simple as shifter bushings, or could it be a bigger project? I will be able to get the car on the lift this weekend, what should I be looking for specifically?
