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...

:drive:

Any leads/tips greatly appreciated, mike

I thought I could move the gearshift lever on it [LT77 'box], by undoing the Lock nut which holds the gearshift lever to the top of the selector mechanism, lifting up the gearshift lever from its mounting splines and repositioning it so that the knob was nearer to the steering wheel.
...My theory anyway.. but the nut at the top is super tight, I can't loosen, at least not with a small hand wrench as it just strips the nut and doesn't loosen for some reason... I hit it with WD40 and I'll wait, but seems way too tight. Any chance that is a reverse thread on these ?
