Default RE: simple question

if u have a ball style then there should be a nut below the ****; otherwise the grip shape **** is pressed on and needs to be pulled off. the easiest way to do this is to remove the shift lever with the **** still on. the lever has a nut below the boot that needs to be loosened and then u would unscrew the lever. i had a bitch of a time getting the **** off, but i was upgrading anyway. so i just cracked the **** in half and junked it.

There is probably a wire retainer clip, look over the **** to find a slot, that is were the wire retainer is located take a small pocket screw driver or pocket knife blade and get the wire out and the **** should pull off.

i dont believe the 1500 was used on the 6 cyl's, the 1500 was used on the 4 cyl's in 96, borg warner t5 in 94-5. hes driving a 97 4.3 which should be the 3500.

For the NV3500 , remove the screws securing shift tower boot to the floor panel and insulator.
remove the shift lever from the shift tower

Default RE: simple question

it has to be pulled off, i just banged a screw driver up the side after i viced the lever. cracked the **** in half but i was replacing it anyway. but a quick idea came to mind when i was reading this. maybe u could fashion a frame out of 2 x4's where the frame would sit higher then the **** and rest on the floor aronud the console, use a simple gear/pulley puller to try a pry it off. make sure u make the frame with enough clearance to remove the **** but also close enough for the teeth on the puller to get a nice bite. but let me tell u, that **** is on fairly tight, so maybe u might fair better with the cave man method and junk the thing.. why are u taking it off in the first place? and as far as replacment, i ended up fashioning a rod that came out of the lever that allowed me to attach the new **** by utilizing its set screw and eliminating the pressed grooves. plus it brought the shifter a inch or so closer to me , which is good if ur tall.
