Re: '87 5KCSTWQ 5-speed Question

<< I have a 5-speed in my '87 5KCSTQW
 and just today, it started to get really hard to shift into first and and
 little more difficult than ususal in and out of second.
 I know these transmissions have somewhat of a rep for this but this seems
 a bit sudden. I recently ahd the fluid checked. It was clean and full.
 Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Sounds to me like you need to center the shift bay....  pull the boot off the
shift console, loosen 4 allen screws holding the shift bay in.....  Move it
slightly to the left, tighten the screws....  should take about 5 minutes....
  Make sure you can still shift into reverse, the best procedure is to adjust
so that the full right just hits the fifth gear stop...
