Cool Guy Cruisin’ With His Hand On The Shift Knob
The small things can cause problems. One fellow had a habit of resting his hand on the shift knob.
“Resting” your paw of 3-5 pounds, puts pressure through the transmission linkage and into the tranny, causing premature wear on the shift forks and synchro sliders. If you tend to press down, the effect is worse.
Be a cool guy by keeping your hands off the shifter knob.
