Do you know what is being tightened? Several times on the QTC I had
the shift linkage disconnect from the transmission at the tranny conn-
ection. It was rather simple to resolve, there was a bolt that went
into the shift rod much like a set screw would. This bolt would loosen
over time and make it difficult or impossible to shift. I cleaned the
grease from the area and liberally applied Locktite to the shaft and
the threads ... haven't had a problem since.
