Can I use a 4-speed shifter rebuild kit in my 3-speed? Seems like the springs on the trunnions would work better than the rubber bushings. I installed the 3-speed kit about 2 months ago and its already rattling.

Did you use wave washers on the linkages? Never liked the "kits" that eliminated the springs. Perhaps a very thin wave washer under the bolt head would keep the rubber "loaded"?

I rebuilt my 3 speed shifter using the right rubber bushings about 4 years ago. Still quiet as.
Has one of the bushings fallen out or worn away?
