- Get up, enjoy the day, prep the SVT for AutoX Sunday

I hope I can get more intimate with mine. Hopefully meeting up with Raymond tonight to borrow his jack and jack stands. Then hopefully Sunday starting to tear into the SVT. I have a lot of work to do to it. Pulling the and replacing the clutch, struts, springs, sway bar, and brake lines and that's just the front and off the top of my head.

I did those solid shifter bushings yesterday. Didn't notice much. Does feel a little nicer. Still have slot of wiggle/slop side to side though.

Gonna try to convince Amber to come with to watch autox Sunday... But we do have to pack up her place and mine, so idk.

Shifter Bushings? Interesting. Is it suppose to help with the sloppy shifter movement on the MKIs?

If so, there was a How-To thread on fixing the sloppy shifter.

Well, I know there is one for the Getrag, but I don't see a reason why the MTX wouldn't have the same part.

If you follow the shifter cables to the tranny, you will notice at the end there is a plastic square piece that holds it it (if memory serves me right)

The OP of that How-To, showcased photos that all he did was take that plastic piece out, rotated it 90 degrees and re-installed. Since the plastic piece is a perfect square, it rotated easily and went right back in easily. That put his shifter slop back to that new feeling of almost no slop. Nice.

Interesting that those kind of critical pieces are made of plastic. Oh well, it's weight reduction and cost effecient.

If I run into that thread again, I will post it up for you guys ... if that is indeed what you were going for.
