You don't really need a drawing, you just need to look for the dog-point set screw / jam nut at the front of the hole where the shifter enters the transaxle.

Place the shifter back into the hole until the hole in the front of the pivot ball aligns with the end of the set screw and tighten the set screw gradually while moving the shifter. Once the shifter starts to feel snug but still moves freely, hold the set screw while tightening the jam nut.

Before inserting shift lever, make sure that the forks are aligned in the neutral position as shown below:

Just replace Photobucket pics that have broken links

And make sure you don't drop it inside the tranny. The same thing happened to my ranger, couldn't get the f'n bolt out so had to split the case, only to find out that I pulled half of the case where the shift balls were, and now can't get the brake drum off so I can put it together.... :D

Man o man I love this website!

You guys are addons really.

My 312-8 shifter was not going into gear and I followed the directions from rmaynards top notch pictures and found my pin was sheared.

I made one with a nail carefull to leave room for the dogpoint screw to secure the doughnut looking thing on the shift rod at the proper height and I was back in business!

Very pleased with myself, but I could not have done it without rmaynards top notch diagram.

Thanks alot.

Back in 2009, I came here looking for help myself, and I never left.

Glad my little tutorial was of help to you.

Agreed, and it would be even more excellent if @rmaynard could find his original photos and repost them here. :)

It's a shame that Photobucket has become so greedy and is holding everyone's images hostage unless they pay $399 to upgrade.
