    subject just about says it. My shifter is worn out and needs to be replaced. Where is the best place to find one or is there something like a bushing that could be replaced?

    keep your eye on ebay.

    you also can attempt to weld yours. most likely it is cracked, pull the shifter and it should be very clear what has gone bad.

    I just want to take the play out of it. it moves at least 5 inches while in gear. You can still hit the gears but I am sure it would be easier if the shifter wasn't so lose.

    I poped it out last night and looked at it, the pins that goes through the shifter has wollowed out the holes, do I just need to put alittle weld in there. does there need to be any play or would a solid piece work fine?

    IIRC there are TWO failure points on the shifter. One is where there are factory welds that break, and then that pin. I would say no problem welding it all up as long as everything was in the same position as when new before starting. I'm pretty sure it's been done on here, and I didn't hear anything bad about it.
