My husband is at this moment in the garage cussing Blue because he can't get the old shifter out to install the new TT short shift kit. Can anyone help before he kicks my baby?

Hehe... it can be pretty frustrating.

I was tryin' w/a friend and we finally folded; went to the local parts store (O'Reily's) and picked up a 'large gear puller' that looked like this:

It was only like $7? They make'em with 3 prongs too that'd probably be easier, this one kinda slipped off a couple times.

I've done it before without one, it's pretty rough. If you EVER need to remove a windsheild wiper, it'd come in real handy then too; they're just as bad.


What's so frustrating is that it's so simple. Just pull straight up. ;)
