1. How much slack should be in the Harley shift linkage? The transmission shift pawl allen bolt is tight, but has a lot of free play!
2. When are you coming out with the removing and replacing a transmission? Dave F
Dave, the shift arm should be locked tight to the shift shaft. Sometimes the pinch bolt on the shifter arm may feel tight but if you can get a good bite on it with a good 1/4″ allen and a long handle ratchet, you may be able to snug it up another 1/2 a turn. If that does not work out, the shift arm is too worn and will need to be replaced. We are currently posting videos in the Harley Transmission Project Class. Thanks for your question.
