QU10131 Shift Lever Boot for New Venture NV4500 5 Speed Manual Transmissions is also known as the Shift Stub, Shift Tower, or Shift Lever Seal. These New Old Stock (NOS) Boots/Seals are genuine New Venture Gear parts for 1992 to 1997 Dodge and 1992 to 1994.5 GM New Venture NV4500 series 5 speed manual transmissions. These early production transmissions have a shift cover with an integral round shift tower. QU10131 Seal slips over the shift stub and it snaps into a groove in the aluminum tower
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 1:
Your shift lever must be removed from the shift stub to install this seal. GM and 1992-1993 Dodge Shift levers are threaded so you simply remove the floor boot(s) and unscrew the right hand thread shift lever. 1994-1997 Dodge levers are pressed onto a vertical square shift stub. QT2025 special Puller/Installer is used to press the shift lever on/off. Sometimes the friction spring in the shift lever is weak and you can pull the shift lever off by hand.
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note 2:
New Venture built NV4500 transmissions with two types of shift covers. 1992-1994.5 GM and 1992-1997 Dodge models have covers with integral towers and use QU10131 Seal. Later model transmissions have flat tops and use removable towers. We do not have the rectangular seal used on the remove able shift towers.
