Dodge Omni GLH Shift Linkage Installation
I installed the Great Lakes Hot Rods L body Shift Linkage kit in my Omni
There are some differences between the NA GLH and turbo model shift linkages which gave me a really
rough time. Notice where my NA ball socket is on the long piece which goes
to the shifter vs. stock. See also how my piece is angled so much more than
the turbo piece is.
If you barely install the spherical bearing into the rod that will be a
great starting place to allow for proper movement and placement of the
shifter for the NA models. Installing the ball on the opposite side like
stock may help, but I was following the directions, and the height wouldn't
have been all that different anyway.
At 2:31 you can see the arm which goes to the shifter and compare it to a
turbo one in the instructions you're

A video of my Daytona, there hard to find now. I had one for my first car
back in 1995 and always thought they were neat cars. 2.2L turbo, 146 hp and around 170 torque was not bad

Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Gen.3 Minivan, 1996 - 2000, Strut Tower Repair Job
Here is a video rundown on my method of repairing rotted out front strut
towers on these minivans. This method is way better than the Chry. Corp.
recommended fix of merely gluing on a cap. It is also the only viable fix,
for when they get to this stage of deterioration. There is no way that a
glued and riveted cap would work on a van in this condition. I am
absolutely confident that a repair like this will outlast the rest of the
These are darn handy vans to have around, and an otherwise nice one ( apart
from this issue ), is well worth fixing.
