    Hi all. I need some help.

    I have the classic no 2/5th gear issue on my Ex, and I found another 5R55S cheap. I discovered today why is was so cheap. The shift linkage was absolutely destroyed. The parts that are shot are the linkage arm where the cable connects, the outer nut, the shaft itself, and the inner detent rack. I have found what I think I need from various sources, but the linkage arm is around $100-$150 from various sources. I'll spare you the rant about why a stamped piece of steel with a small ball attachment is that much. What I would like to know is does anyone know the correct Ford part numbers for the pieces I need? If I'm going to drop this kinda cash, I wanna make sure I am getting the right stuff. Also, does anyone have these parts they would part with? I'll pay a fair price, but I'm not jazzed about dropping $200 for parts that should be no more than $50

    Thanks

    Doug
