3000GT VR4 / Dodge Stealth AWD Transfer Case Input Spool Replacement

3000GT / Dodge Stealth Transmission Shift Fork Roll Pin Walk-Out

The 1/2 shift fork on both the 5 and 6 speed has a real habit of having the roll pin walk out. Issues from this can range from missing gears to engaging two gears at once, which can be catastrophic to say the least!We loctite the pins in to help prevent this. The available 6 speed billet forks also help eliminate this because of reduced flex in the fork itself.You can see the 1/2 shift fork roll pin [...]
