Re: Oil leak right where timing cover head and block meet

I contemplated trying this to see if it would work. Good to know that it might work I do believe it is just the timing cover leaking .

Re: Very stiff shifter (5speed Manual)

There is a plastic spacer around the pin and the plastic looks to be done. I pulled the plastic out and it feels better but I am going to go ahead and swap it anyway. In fairness the shifter has...

Re: Very stiff shifter (5speed Manual)

Where the cable that operates gear changes. Where that cable attaches to the shift lever assembly the ball socket is on a piece that should pivot freely and it doesn't . It's incredibly stiff

Re: Making a new bushing on transmission side of linkage.

I ground down a 12mm socket to fit the loop end and glued a piece of fuel hose inside the socket and reinstalled it. Works good and has zero slop!

My saturn has the exact same issue as yours.
Did you just tack in some nuts to the plate you installed and bolt the trailing arm up like that or?

Re: Making a new bushing on transmission side of linkage.

Basically the bushing is gone so in it's place I put a nut on it and put it back on the stud on the transmission and reinstalled the retaining clip.
