how does this part come off...i would have thought it would just slide off the end of the trans....we don't want to screw anything up

does it snap on/off with some persuasion?

Thin flat blade screwdriver (or two) to pry under the thin sheetmetal sleeve that covers the front part. Then push it forward or backward to slide it off to reveal the pins. Then push one of the pins out. May need a small drift punch or small L shaped allen wrench to tap a pin out or one may almost fall out. One is vertical, the other is horizontal. Remove the frontmost pin to remove the whole thing.

At the back end, a small allen head screw has to be removed or loosened, then you push the bigger size pivot pin at the back out to either side, one side may have more space.

If you have this early style shift rod, consider getting the later style at some point, if you want to eliminate some shifter slop. You'll need a new shift lever too. But if you are trying to improve shifter slop, buy a new shift rod joint and pin at the front when you convert to the newer shift rod, used ones always have wear.

If you keep the old setup, replace those 2 plastic top hat looking washer bits at the back if they are worn or loose.
