How much play is "normal" in the shift lever? I just finished doing my timing belts and discovered that the shift lever shaft is what I would call a little wobbly. There is an inner nut right next to the case and an outer one that holds the shift lever on and they are both tight. Thanks

The 1500 has a two piece shifter shaft . One shaft exits the case and has a splined end . This shift shaft is behind a header pipe . So they use an offset shaft to clear the header .
The first shaft does normally have some looseness in the case bore . Its possible that your offset/extension shaft is loose on its spline fitting . Make sure that bolt is tight .

1500 shift lever

Normal slop on the 1500. Check that the seal is not working itself out of the engine case.

Thanks on these replies. I did check the seal and looked fine, a slight amount of oil residue, nothing excessive and the seal looked secure. I didn't realize they were two piece so I will just keep an eye on the "slop". The bolt on the inside appeared to be fairly tight.
