I have a 1986 Jeep CJ7. How do I tell whether I have the T5 transmission, and if so does anybody have a schematic (blow-up picture) of how these parts attach at the end of the shifter handle.
I notice from reading a few of these repair threads that the fix for a T5 transmission includes, either or all of:
1) Shift Rod Bushing, part # - J3241481,
2) Shift Handle Isolator Clip, part # - J3241239, and/or
3) The ball at the bottom of the shifter assembly. If its worn (or worn away), the shifter will continue to rock around while driving and have slack in it.
I have done some dis-assembly, and reviewed Quadratec's Borg-Warner T5 Transmission schematics, so if in fact I have the T5 transmission, I note that the Isolator Clip which consists of four separate prongs, looks stressed/old, and the tip of one end has broken off. So, I definitely need a new one.
Where the nub comes out of the Shifter Boot (the base to the transmission the shift handle sits on, with the Isolator Clip inside the housing) I notice the shift handle is sloppy with that particular Isolator Clip in there. I then took the nub in my hand (tranny in neutral) and tried moving the nub about, but there's not too much play if any, so I'm thinking the Shift Rod Bushing (the round plastic piece) appears pretty solid, and that the source the sloppiness is in the Isolator Clip. Would you agree?
And, looking at the schematic for the T5, what would the Shifter Isolator be? Does it form part of the Isolator Clip, or is it a separate piece as the description says it's for vehicles T5 Transmissions or NP231 Transfer Case? So, my question is, does this form part of the Isolator Clip, or what is the situation with this Shifter Isolator?
have the same problem?
