Default What's Missing Here?

Looks like the PO wrapped the end of the trans stick in electrical tape then wedged the shift knob onto it. What should be here to hold the shift knob in place? IMG_20180608_170932.jpegIMG_20180608_170921.jpeg

Mine is installed in the EXACT same manner. Don't know how it got that way, or how it's supposed to be, but I haven't placed this fix very high on my to-do list.... yet. So many other things to do.

Rubber tube - comes with the shift-knobs

If you can find some hose that is the same outer diameter as the knob, and slightly smaller ID than the threaded shaft a ~3/4" piece will work in the same manner as the original.

The shift knob is held on by some crappy soft plastic. I replaced both of them with custom epco knobs on the lt77 and lt230

They have brass bushings

People being to aggressive with their knobs. New knobs are cheap.

Mine is the same way. It slowly rotates counter clockwise, take about 215 miles to get a full 90 deg to the left.

Had the same issue with the hi/low knob on the RRC. Couldn?t find the part (to be honest I didn?t look too hard) so I machined a plug from 1/2? hdpe and threaded the center. Thought I?d have to glue it in but the fit was tight and it?s not coming off.
