Re: Hot Shot pops out of gear

I got the shifter rebuilt, now it stays in 2nd but comes out of 3rd still occasionally.

This article shows balls and springs on both sides of the rails, and an egg-shaped object between the rails.
I think the ball and spring under the plug side would help keep it in third if the Crosley bar has an indent on it there.
