    Thread: A little build

    1. 02-18-2012 12:23 PM #51
      Hey , just wanted to share what I did with the shifter to be able to adapt to my new shifter cables . I went with 10mm rod ends and didn't really want to bushing down so..
      I took a 10mm Stainless bolt , cut a clip groove in it with a tubing cutter and a matabo blade .
      I then took a grinder with a sandpaper disk and shaped the end so it would adapt to the clip ..
      anyway ..here are some pics ..took about 45 min to do both..

      I will try to get a pic of that but I really didn't do anything special. I figured I couldn't run the cables straight back. So there is a 180 degree. Bend coming off the shifter, run all the way under the Eng. Trans. And then hooked back up. The cables are 10ft. Long

      2 inches of travel is the same for a 4 ft cable as it is for a 10 ft cable

      In all seriousness, I am assuming becuase the engine is rear and the cables need to come out the front if the box toward the front of the car, make a 180 toward the back, then go all the way to the far back of the car and bend around 180* heading forward again to the trans bracket.

      To the OP, I am wondering if you could have reversed the shift box and/or bracket on the trans 180* to make it much easier and/or a straight shot from the box to the trans as in a front engine orientation. Either way, it sound like you got it.

      Definitely a very cool project and very nice work

      He probably could have modified/added relay levers but its kind of a toss up. Yeah the cables are shorter but now there's more to break.
      Looking good man keep up the good work.

      but the two 180 degree turns makes more sense now..

      josh, not sure what you were replying too....but...

      "brown" is one of the connectors in the plenum chamber that is the pass thru from the cabin to the bay....

      this connector holds wires that power the ECU....

      I'm liking the progress here. Will you put a down turn tip on that exhaust so it's not pointed at the tire and catch can?
