    Welcome to the group, I'm in Dallas GA and use my 419 weekly. Let me know if I can be of any help.

    Good Evening,

    I recently purchased a 1987 419 SEE, however when trying to drive it in hi range the transmission or ? locks the wheels up like a mild skid I guess you can say. You can drive it in low range all day long. Do you think this bushing could be my issue? I have no abnormal noises. Thank you all in advance.

    My 1989 FLU-419 lost all odd numbered gears after being difficult to shift for some time. I assume it's the shifter bushing everyone speaks of.

    A couple things I need from my fellow Unimog brothers.

    1) I found the part for 13 bucks - But they want like 14 to ship it. It's a matter of principle that it doesn't cost that much to ship. Anyone have a Promo code for free shipping for this supplier?

    2) For those of you who have suffered the pain of changing out this bushing... Could you please make a youtube video describing the process? I am sure you don't want to go out and re-monkey around with the cab area... But even a white board drawing would help our us newbies.

    In exchange for one of you guys making this video... you can checkout the video I made on how to clean/rebuild the air brake regulator for the FLU-419 here:

    If you are looking for cheaper shipping.......make sure to select SHOW USPS RATES and select that option. In cases like this if we can fit in a flat rate priority we will and usually will drop the shipping as low as possible prior to capturing the funds. Or you could just put a couple things together all at once and save on the shipping.

    Replacing the shifter bushing fixed the problem. There was hardly any old bushing left. Took about an hour. I did not remove the airlines.

    1.. Pull boot up from rubber deck boot.
    2. Loosen 4 bolts for the rubber deck boot and move down.
    3. Push down and counter clockwise on the cap holding shifter in place
    4. Theres a spring retainer, slide up. OD paint may make it difficult
    5. Pull up...should pop out.. Inspect for damage.
    6. Clean out hole of old bushing ( see pic)
    7. Put a cloth in hole and remove 2 pins. Dont let them drop in the tranny.
    8. One of the pins has a small E-Clip...
    9. Clean hole...grease bushing and install
    10. Reinstall pins in side. Smaller drivers...fatter passenger
    11. Grease ball of shifter and slide in....firmly. it will pop in...if you don't feel it pop its not down and you wont be able to fet the retainer cup down.
    12. Push spring cap down then follow with retaining cup...line up with pins and push down hard and clockwise. Make sure its all the way engaged. (Make sure the shifter peg is in the hole...centered.) Im not sure if its possible to get this wrong but Im sure some have tried.

    Pull deck boot up and tighten tab bolts to cab(4ea)
    Push boot down and into place.

    Your done....take for drive.
