Here’s the shifter assembly shown in place on the mounting bracket. The next step was to make sure the shift lever was in the correct orientation (at about the 4:30 position) and to attach the secondary lever to the side of the trans. I then eyeballed the threaded shift rod, cut it to the correct length (making sure the shifter and trans lever were in the Park position before doing so), and threaded on the jamb nuts and rod ends. Keep in mind that the farther forward you mount the shifter on the bracket, the higher you’ll have to position the shift arm (say at 4:00 versus 4:30) so you don’t over-center the lever, causing binding. After everything was mounted and tightened up I ran the shifter through the gears several times, making slight adjustments in the shift rod assembly as needed. After an adjustment or two I was satisfied and everything worked perfectly.
