lock pins

I'm trying to replace my shift linkage support on a side shifter 914 tranny. I reached the ball joint on the shifter at the tranny, and it has a lock pin in it. Does anyone know how to remove these pins? My haynes book says to "drive out the lock pin" but i'm not entirely sure how to go about this.

I am not sure what you are doing, but you shouldn't have to drive out any lock pins unless there is a major event taking place. If I understand you right, you are trying to hood like part on the side shifter where the rod transfers through? You could get a whole assembly used from someone if that is of interest to you. If you already have it off of the tranny (you need to have it off of the tranny, it will be world easier and you will not break anything extra) you just drive it out with a drift or a punch and a hammer. If you can take pictures that would help.
I hope I understood you correctly.

Not too familiar with the side shifters I have a tail, but mine has 2 set screws with points if I remember right, and one roll pin that must be driven out. For the roll pin just take a punch just barely smaller than the OD of the pin, and tap it out with a hammer. Not much to it...

The "side-shift console" (the part bolted onto the transmission that the side-shift linkage enters the transmission case inside of) is held on by two nuts. Put the transmission in neutral, remove the two nuts, get soaked by the transmission fluid. (Whoops--drain it first!! )

Ahh, here we go. Click the link for a picture. Part #16 is what I'm referring to as the "side-shift console".

Then you can put the whole shebang into a vise and drive out the roll pin, using your favorite punch and BFH. It's probably wisest to back up the part with a piece of wood with a hole in it; that should help support the part so you don't bang anything else up besides the roll pin.

Use a new O-ring on the console when you re-install it. New seals around the shaft running through the console couldn't hurt either...

ok well now that i have all of that fixed, I put it all back together, but can I lost 4th and 5th gears because the rod won't go down through the support far enough(or well that's what i think). Any suggestions?

Make sure your motor mounts are in good shape, and that the bar has not sagged. If this is a conversion of an earlier tail-shift chassis, swap out the outboard rubber mounts on the motor mount bar and swap in the later solid mounts.

Hey Coke, the bushing that you replaced for the rear shift rod needs to be turned around. The rear cup that holds the bushing/ball that then goes into the trans cannot go far enough forward to let you ingage 4th/5th. Did you get the brass bushing for this? I've had several friends put that in backwards and have the same problem.

well i unattached the linkage and still can't pull the rod down into 4th/5th, so i'm wondering if it could be an alignment issue w/in the tranny.

What was the deal with the 4th/5th? The internal shift rails got mis-aligned?

I screwed up after putting it together the first time. I put in a new oil seal w/out taking out the old one, and it slipped my mind, so that the extra seal was keeping me from being able to pull the rod down all the way
