Shift linkage maintenance

Where is there information on trouble shooting and repairing the Milano and late GTV6 shift linkage. I haven't been able to locate it in my manual. --TIA

If you go to this link and look under "Fix a Rattling Shifter" there's a good writeup on how to access, grease, and tighten the pivot point below the shifter. That can seize up.

The Alfa 75 / Milano Resource

On the back end, yeah, rebuild it with the Monkey Shifter kit. The isostatic linkage is really good when it's not worn.

There's nothing in the manual AFAIR. There is a exploded diagram I think. But the maintenance is just take it apart, clean and lubricate.

Bye

Reviving an old thread...has anyone used the Monkey Shifter Kit with (or without) the new ball joint linkage? If so, how is it?

Monkey shifter very good

The Monkey Shifter Kit is the bee's knees, the Cat's Pajamas, used it on several transaxle cars, big improvement.

This is the Kit

The picture below is the speed control arm with ball joint. I have not used this personally but the reviews have been good.
