3rd gear shift

Under hard acceleration , shifting from 2nd to third, it is as if the 3rd gear slot is gone. I have , replaced engine and trans mounts, changed trans oil, and I will now change the shift assembly. The engine mounts were sagging a lot ,so nothing lost replacing them. The shift assy has 3/4inch free play in any direction. Sounds like too much. Shifting very slowly works. (not why I got this car) It happens during up shift or down. Even if I double clutch (up or down ) , no help. That tells me that it is not a syncronizer issue.

install rubber boot to clutch cable pipe

Model: 930S, Year:1987, Mileage:85000, Type of use:Street use only
Could you please explain to me where the clutch cable is attached to the clutch release lever. The cable comes out of a 1/2" pipe. There is a small, approx. 4" rubber boot fastened to the pipe and to the clutch release lever. How do I install this boot? Do I have to disconnect the cable at the clutch release lever? If so, how is this done?Henry Deisinger

Clutch & pedal adjusting proceedure

Vehicle Information: Year: 1978; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3; Total Mileage: 59,000;

What is the correct clutch and clutch pedal adjusting proceedure for a 1978 930? The clutch lever has the horseshoe spring but does not have the coil spring to the short lever arm. The clutch pedal will 'pull back' about 1" but does not spring forward from that position on it's own. Instead of 1.2 mm and 1mm adjustment gaps I use 1mm and .8mm for the set bolt on the arm.The clutch had been not releasing completely as when going into reverse. Thanks,

I have a B&M short shifter. When second gear is engaged and I am coasting at low RPM, it jumps into neutral (does not occur when accelerating). This only occurs in second gear. Any ideas?Thank you in advance,

Last week my throttle cable got stuck at full Thottle. After running several people off the road and a near death experience, I shut the ign off. Do you know of any mods to the linkage just under the accelerator floor board.

I have a very annoying vibration rattle in the shift lever. It is most prominent in first and second gear.
