wow...thank you. The toyota world is a good world, ten yrs after the fact you cry and pull your hair, and an OP re-ups old pics withIN the hour. For this, i stick with toyota. So it is this now mangled, bent spring i can't figure out, in a T100 (93), also why the whole stick tumbled out without me ever having to fool with a snap ring?? Unit would shift but stick wouldn't hold position at 4hi, and seemed about to jam. Original owner put new clutch before parking it years ago. FSM seems to have a plan but i don't quite get it. The spring prongs fit into little holes under the plate. But then what?
