Will do. As soon as the mail man delivers my turbofold I will re assemble the car. I know I can't downshift into third and hold it past 3,000 rpms. If it's fixed I will be VERY happy. Give me a few days. Hopefully I get the turbofold tomorrow, in which case I will run some data logs and let you all know how I like it. If not we will have to wait until next week.

I don't really want to wrench anymore. I'd rather detail.

Thank you very much. If you guys would like to move its location that is welcome. If you guys want to send me a dollar for every time its read that's also welcome.

PS: I still need to fill in the blanks. What's the Mopar sealant P/N?

I would also be quite pleased to fix this problem. It' would be great to be able to downshift into 3rd gear again.

I used a regular gear wrench. If you can get a gear wrench with the little switch that reverses the direction, then that's best. You can find them at Autozone, Do It, Sears, Oreilley's, or almost anywhere.

Or you can get the kind that you flip it over and it reverses the direction.

I just got done doing this. I didn't have to move the transmission. I just took off the intake, battery, and battery tray. Pulled shifter cables and pulled the shift plate. It isn't that hard if you have the correct tools.

Thanks for the How To!

You can install with the trans still bolted in place it's just not as easy to get in there. That's how I did them at the shop but I will say it would be a lot easier with it lowered

Agreed. I was doing many upgrades and repairs so I already had the trans mount out. In the last 2 weeks I have done the LCA bushings, 4th mount, turbofold removal (need a new one), end links, 3rd gear extender and some "spring cleaning." The trans mount has been out for a while.

I think just the extender and shift selector. As far as I know.
