B&M short shift install and reverse gear problem

Recommended Posts

I have spent the last few hours installing the ssk - delayed quite some time getting the shift knob off. I was cruising on the install until now. The front of the ssk seems to be rubbing against the front of the oem shift case - I have pics below that show it rubbing off the plastic on the left side. As you may imagine i am having difficulty keeping the shifter in reverse. Is this a bushings problem or do I need to adjust the shift wires. I have ready many threads but none of them seem to have a rubbing problem. Thanks in advance for your assistance -

Loren - thanks for your prompt reply. I was using tapatalk with the forum and just discovered it does not automatically update. I have attached two additional photos. It is a B&M, just an older one with Teflon bushings. Thanks for your help-

Loren - not sure what you mean by the bolt assembly. My problem is that blue mechanism in the upper left corner (around 11 o'clock) is hitting against the plastic cage. You can see it rubbing and removing the plastic in the pic below. I am not certain but I believe this is what is making it difficult to get into reverse gear. It goes in it is just more difficult. As it is wearing away at the plastic it seems to be becoming easier. Thanks.

Hmm... perhaps that is why B&M went with the aluminum bushings.

That has to be an olde shifter because I haven't seen the shifter without aluminum bushings since 2002 (the B&M in my car is like yours I installed it in 2001).

Sorry, I'm out of ideas. Most of these installs are no brainers.
