Re: Any suggestions with where to buy a new gear shift linkage
Most use 3rd as it supports normal hiway driving. The LT is good to 62 in first but I have never gone to the rev limiter in second - on purpose. In third you can exceed every speed limit in the USA.
Nothing wrong with the stock linkage that a little maintenance won't fix. The shafts break when the ball studs become loose and a heavy foot is used. Often when at a stop and trying to stomp it into first with the clutch held in for some time. The stuff inside the tranny needs to be spinning a wee bit to make her go into gear.
