Hi !
well, I was a little optimistic ...
Everything is at the machine shop, but I had a problem with some parts, which means that now I have twice the parts to modify to accomodate de ball bearings ... but don't worry, it won't change anything for you

Hi !
I just got the parts back from the machine shop !
They are perfectly machined !

I'm sorry for the longer wait than expected, but I had some problem with them... I had to machine twice as much parts to fit the BB this time !


that's the other part that I had to modify

Putting the new shifter in place

Who else had problems getting the long shaft in and the side bushing at the same time....or did I miss something.....it was very very tight

Was it a drag or the bearings didn't fit at all in the buckets ?
Everyone that was in the first round of shifters, if the bearings don't seem to fit, don't force them inside ! Tell me, I'll fix it (I think I know why but I'm waiting to get Dwight's shifter back).

Those in thz second round, don't worry, they fit (when you'll open the package you'll see them already assembled )

Ben.

Thanks so much

My original question was not about the shifter ends fitting into the buckets, but getting the new shifter into the plastic OEM assembly after removing the original. You insert the long end in first and the the side pin into the bushing....it is very very tight....or an I missing something ??

Oh, I have to remember !
The easiest way is to do it with the whole assembly out of the car.
The way I did, is that I held the shifter in place, with the side pin in the lever, and slid the two buckets through the assembly and over the bearings, then put the clips.
Then finish by tightening the set screw gently (there is no need to use a lot of force here !), and tighten the locking nuts.

The buckets should be tight inside the assembly so there is no play. If they are too tight, a little bit of 400 grit sand paper should clear it

It should work by doing so.
