I know what it says Oledirty. I believe I removed all that it says to but there is almost no space. I even pulled out a bore scope and looked inside the case. Very Tight. I am just going to split the case and next winter i will work on a mod to get the shifter link to the outside of the case. That will be the fun stuff. Have any of you guys used any of the silicon gasket making items. I am pretty hesitant to use that on aluminum. I have only used it in steel or cast items. I did read a thread were some people say it works but I am looking for more input.

Well guys. I got the case open and found the broken linkage. It was not the threaded tie rod. It turned out the be the first link on the shifter rod ( may be saying the wrong part). I will be putting it all back together this weekend and thank you all for the advise and help.

So I fixed the tie rod. Ended up going into the whole case. It was better that one since I had no help on this project. I am still confused how any one can do this without cracking the case. It is so tight in there.

I replace the shift rod on my 94 and I agree with you, That is so tight in there it's virtually impossible, but if they say they did it then who am I to argue.

So I posted this in another section but I will recap here. I put the whole engine together and installed it in the frame. Started up after some work on the fuel lines and then the front cylinder wouldn't fire. After trouble shooting I ended up blowing the front cylinder to ****. I am putting this whole project on hold till the winter. Thank you guys very much for the talk support and help. I will be posting later on as time goes on but if I want to keep my wife happy I need to finish a few other projects first.

Was it because of the tie rod, or what blew the front cylinder up?
