Remove each of the three gear selector detent springs. On the K-Series transmission, they are located on the top of the trans case.

Once you remove the detent spring housing, remove it slowly making sure no dirt or debris fall into the case.

If your transmission has washers be sure to keep the washer in place and do not lose it. If you fail to reinstall the washer you run the risk of damaging the bolt and not being able to get the transmission into gear.

Swap the stock, silver spring for the longer black HR detent spring. The ball detent should remain inside of the transmission case.

Notice the Black Zinc Chromate plated HR springs are taller. You will remove the silver springs and install the taller ones.
