I took my shift lever off when I replaced my piston. Now I can't get it back on. It goes on halfway but I can't get it all the way on. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Are you trying to put it on with the bolt still in it? That won't work.

No, I have the bolt all the way out.

Just checking. Clean the splines thoroughly on both parts and try to see what the hang up is.

If it got dropped or stepped on, it may be pinched in a little bit. Try opening it up a little using a flathead screwdriver if the splines are clean.
