Hello there I have a 1994 Suzuki Sidekick 4 wheel drive 16 valve I'm having problems shifting into my gears after about 30 minutes I can shift and it'll run but it's just gets hard to shift into the gears what can that be? I would be very grateful for any help here to steer me the right way.

When the tranny is off, I highly recommend replacing the brass bushings for the throwout bearing fork rod. They're usually worn. Also replace the brass bushing in the rear tranny tail. It really helps getting rid of the slop in the intermediate shaft.

With a thin piece of string tie the back plate through the engine lower bolt hole on each side. Lube the gearbox shaft end and it will enter no problem.

Kevin Smith says:

Can you do a video on how to adjust the clutch cable and troubleshoot that? I'm wondering if I need a new clutch or if I just need to adjust the cable? Thanks great vids by the way I had to subscribe!
