Haha! Excellent. But if you were just replacing the oil seal on the shifter linkage, you would still need to remove the spring pin while under the car. BTW, how much work is involved in removing the other end of the shifter linkage? Special tools or just a wrench?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
