Can the shifter assembly be removed from the tranny by simply removing the shifter guide bolt and the five bolts that hold the shifter in? The "shift" movement is fine, but the "select" movement is partially seized up and not moving properly. I would like to pull it apart and clean it up so it works properly. I sprayed some lube on the mechanism and it helped, but should be removed to get it sorted out.

Yeah. I had to switch mine over doing the hybrid swap because it was broke. I think there is a roll pin you need to punch out. Its been awhile.

You can see the hole for the dowel pin in the large shift lever. There is also a C-clip holding the shaft for the select lever. Take both those off and then you can slide the cover plate off the shaft as well. I wasn't able to pull the shaft out of the transmission, but having those 3 parts off allowed me to clean everything up and paint them.

Just put it in neutral remove the one guide bolt on the side and the bolts on top and it will wiggle out nicely.

Fieroguru, I assume you can buy the ball end that the cable attaches to? I noticed you had one bolted to the custom piece in the pic above.

The F23 was already in the car when it came to me, so I didn't source the ball end. However, it looks like it is just the ball end that is used with most Fiero cables. It "had" a square section right under the head to keep it from spinning in the bracket (like the stock fiero cables use), but I turned it down square to allow it to fit better.

Here is a picture before I modified the square shank portion:

The cables do have a ball/socket affair on the tranny end, but they do not look like they will come apart from the socket they are in. I'll have to take another look at it when i get home from work. If it will, it will be too easy to just use that one. I am using 2 select cables from rodney (that i need to order yet), but i have to call him and let him know i want the cables set up for the f23 ends.
