I just finished installing a new clutch in my car and hooked everything up including the shift linkage that connects to the clutch release cylinder and went to start my car and realized the shifter is angled off to the right. I can shift between 1st and 2nd but I can't get over far enough to the right to shift into 3rd, 4th and 5th. The shift linkage is connected correctly to the clutch release cylinder. How can I adjust the shifter so it is straight again? Do I play with the linkage at the shifter or where it connects to the release cylinder?

Simple task.. One of you move the shifter around up down left and right. While the other looks at the selector fork connections on the transmission side in the engine bay. If you only see one lever moving it?s because you snapped a cable.

Best fo luck.

Can you give more information on your fix? Because there are no settings for the linkage! Its only a clip that sets everything in one specific place... do you have a custom setup?

No its not a custom set up. there are 2 cables for the linkage. the top linkage controls the shifts up and down. the bottom linkage controls the side to side movement. there are two bolts that make the bottom linkage mount moveable (it is located just below and to the right of the driver-side motor/ transmition mount). I loosened the two bolts, set my shifter in the center, then connected the linkage to the mount and put the pin in it. after that i tightened the two bolts down.

Hmm.. Mine is not adjustable.. Once I loosen up the bolts it has limited movement. Once it?s tightened it is locked in place. I guess yours has more movement than I have on mine.. Anyway.. Glad that it fixed your problem..
