I have an 89 Freightliner Cabover with an Eaton Fuller Transmission. I need to replace or rebuild the transmission linkage back at the tranny where the linkage off of the tranny and the linkage up to the shifter join. This is a ball and socket connection and Freightliner tells me they no longer have it available. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Just replaced mine on an IHC and they are available. I don't know if Freightliner used the same but here is where you need to get part numbers.
IHC uses the LRC shifter and I had no trouble getting the joints for it.

I have an '86 Freightliner that used to be a North American truck.
I'll bet the linkage is the same. I'm junking it, so about anything on it is available.

He hasn't been back since he posted his question, so I don't know?

Is the linkage pretty tight on it?

Shoot me the last 6 and year of your truck.
Chances are the Dealer you talked to doesn't know how or wants to use the older Freightliner Parts lookup.
The parts should be Eaton Fuller.

D bear, did you look thru the PDF I attached in the 2nd post? As other have stated, the trans end of linkage is a Eaton part and not supplied by the chassie mfg. You might be able to order them thru Freightliner but they will get them from Eaton.
You can order them yourself once you determine what linkage was used and what part you need.
Any place that sells Eaton parts can get them for you.
I my case, the truck used the LRC remote control and I needed the part that the control tube attached and had the ball joint on the lever. I can't remember what it cost but it I think it was around $150 but that may have included expedited shipping.
