Well I had many of the same issues. The delrin ball was too big, I shaved it down, but in. The nd it pretty much sucked. The delrin bushings I had to massage almost all of them, some had to be drilled bigger others sanded. Then the aluminum spacers used on the shift arm to weighted link were too small and the whole thing was sloppy, I had to get new ones made, and lastly the feel with the weight sucked IMO so I had a aluminum rod machined to replace it. For the price I was disappointed in the quality of the kit, would I do it again? Probably not, I did not find a big enough diff compared to fresh item joints at a fraction kid the price.
