    Shift Coupler

    I’ve installed new bushings (from Jimmy T) in the coupling that connects to the shift rod. The coupler is rather stiff. I can move it by hand, but it takes some force. Before I install I wanted to check if that’s normal ?

    I like it like that.
    It has a much longer lever than your fingers, and would have no problem moving the tiny amount it moves.

    It's surprising how much transmission noise is transferred / amplified with tight bushings . Enlarge the holes somehow .

    It's a tradeoff, and one I was willing to make. The stock ones are enlarged and lead to slop. The aftermarket ones are tight, made of various plastics or metals. I opted for JimmyT's as well several years ago. No complaints. If your engine and transmission mounts are fresh, there really isn't an issue. If that whole lump is vibrating and shifting back there, then I can imagine that solid or semi-solid mounts might not be ideal.
