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.
