Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site. .Do the cables move the levers at the trans when you have an assistant move the shifter? (it is under the air intake hose and air box)

I see, thanks. That would be in the shifter assembly, it doesn't sound like the cable(s) fell off if they do move any. .Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished.
