Gearstick collar how tight

How tight should the gearstick collar be. The one with the bendable tabs.

Tight in what sense?  TO screw on/off? Or the tighness of the stick once on?

There was a nylon screw thread on the collar is I remember correctly. It shouldn't be too tight to put on, but that rather depends on the cleanliness and damage of the thread.  I suspect in a perfect world you could largely do it by hand.  I have used adjustable spanners of various sorts on the nut.

My stick was never super-stiff- its a light weight shify - but not terribly floppy either.    If floppy, I'd check the various springs are still in place in the stick assembly.
