Shift Lever Pulled Out


I just bought my first Jeep and am very excited! On it's first trip off road (through a ditch) I pulled the stick lever right out. I dropped it back in and was up and running. Well, I still need to correct it properly but am having a hard time finding the part that keeps it secure. All of the diagrams that I look at only show the rubber boot and the sleeve. They also only show the stick as one part where mine is 2. My Jeep is an 83 CJ7 and the transmission is a T5. I have posted some pics and would appreciate help identifying the part.

I have considered that. But really, I want to learn my Jeep and repair it with the proper parts. I'm not short on ingenuity but would like to limit the custom repairs for long term success. Plus, I should be able to find the darn thing. I wouldn't think it would be that hard, it should be a common part.

Thanx for the comment!

A little disappointed that this post didn't get more attention. I did find a picture of this part attached properly. I just can't tell how it is secured. You can see that the part on the stick (in my pictures) gets secured to the plate somehow. It looks like there are some clips but they don't hold the part to the plate.

I'm with ya, Dude. I have the same problem. Did you find a solution? Don't know why some threads like this get no attention.
