Shift Linkage Removal

How the heck do you get it out? I removed the "cone screws" from the front and back but it won't come out. Is there somewhere I should tap with a hammer to break it free? Does it go through all the way on the rear and could I use something like a pulley pull to pop it out? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The fit in the rear "cup" is very tight. You may need to use a hammer and a very large pin punch.

The other thing you need to do is disconnect it from the shifter in the front of the car. This will give you enough room to slide it forward.

I just went through this. Removing the rear shift rod from the piece that connects to the ball cup bushing was a *****. Mine had been hammered by someone in the past, and they evidentky gave up on it.
I pushed the rod backward through that piece and filed/ground it until the ridge was removed enough for it to pass easily through.
Assembly waseasier than disassembly, and having 3 new shift bushings versus 1 old, worn bushing made a world of difference
in shifting!!!!!!!!!

I also used vise grips to rotate the big shift road around to break any corrosional attachment it may have had with the selector.

I got it out finally. I tried hammering it. That didn't work. I used some channel locks and pressed it through. That was the only thing that caused me any problems. Other than that the engine dropped right out. Thanks Wayne for a well written "howto" on engine removal.
