Thanks for helping with my problem!  Let me pick your brain on a couple of

-The gearbox was recently rebuilt (before I bought it)
-The shift knob has always seemed to have excessive play (very sloppy
shifter) but I just thought since it always positively engaged gears and
never popped out of gear, it wasn't a problem (now I'm not so sure!!)

Is there a bushing that the shifter sits in just inside of the top of the
gearbox?  And can I get at it from the shift-tunnel hole?  I'm starting to
think that might be my problem.  Any ideas?
