CHECK YOUR SET SCREWS!!!!

always check the two set screws on the shaft behind the firewall and at the transmission.

i went thru the whole mess of trying to get the linkage right at the shifter. and never could get it right.

i knew i should have checked the set screws, but didn't feel like jacking it up to make sure.

after messing around inside for an hour. i gave up jacked up the back, and sure enough the front one was HALFWAY OUT!!! added more locktight. checked the rear one, it was fine. lowered the car. readjusted all the mess i made at the shifter. and VOILA the thing is back they way it should be.

same weekend a friend had sloppy shifting on his 911. had a similar issue but they had to drill into the hardened shaft because there wasn't a hole for the screw to hold onto and was just a pinch fit that wouldn't hold up.
