the whole thing out the bottom...the arm out the top

Was hoping to remove the ball off the shift arm and pull it through the bottom. Can't get the ball off without breaking it

Try heating up the shifter. The expansion may break it free. You can also try going the other route and use a CO2 fire extinguisher on the shifter. The sudden cold may break it free as well. HTH. -Jim

Thanks Jim. I did try using a heat gun on the knob. Didn't budge. I'll use your cold shot idea and see how that works.

You're welcome. Glad to help. I've used the cold shot trick to free stuck distributors in the past as well. -Jim
