Is Holmes 480 control neutralizer rod supposed to be straight?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if Holmes 480 #56 control rod neutralizer on passenger side is supposed to be straight? Driver side is straight and illustration says they are supposed to be the same=straight, but would like to confirm just in case. It functioned, but if not correct I will fix it.

 

Was going to take slop out of controls and everything associated has been hacked by a real pro. If rod is supposed to be straight I guess something violent happened to "S" bend it. Which could explain ultra sloppy shifter shaft going into case. Uh oh.  

 

Sorry about photobucket.

That definitely helped, thanks for checking. No idea who, why, or what bent it like=one more piece of the puzzle revealed. Driver side linkage is a real mess. Thought I would start on easy side first haha.

 

Thanks again for going to the trouble.

Will do thanks. Appreciate offer.

 

Seeing massive wear and no maintenance/hack repairs starting to give me that nagging feeling. Mostly just time spent on it up till now. Should probably re evaluate after sorting linkage.
