gear shift rod - angle mod help ?
Posting here on this thread as well as another to try an get some feedback/advice/leads...
I have a LT77 gearbox on a RHD of a hybrid mod, and the shift lever essentially is straight vertical to the knob. Problem is the Reverse on this is up and the left (by 1st), and I almost need to lean to get it into R, and there is not a natural / easy feel even to slide to 1st due to the reach required.
I am searching for any experience / advice on how to resolve buy either :
1. Ideally a custom offering
of a shaft angled toward the driver
somewhere to resolve ? (again would need to angle toward driver on right in my case) , or
2. Tips on how to heat up/bend the existing shaft
without causing another problem, weakening the shaft and creating a potential 'snap point' etc...
Any leads/tips greatly appreciated, mike
