B&M Short Shifter Installed: Help please

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

The shifter is installed and works perfectly.

The only thing is the neutral postioning.

When in neutral the gear knob is more over to the left near reverse rather than the normal postioning of the stock kit.

I'm confused. Any help appreciated.

There is a slight bend in vertical shaft portion of shifter. Is yours a true B&M or a knock off (with B&M the vertical shaft is machined...knock offs typically are high polish chrome)? And why is this important to know? Knock offs are/were known to assemble with the shaft turned 180 degrees from orig design (maybe in error or effort to try and avoid patent infringement?). Thus w/ knock offs, shift knob ended up further left. That's my guess assuming shift cables are 100% correctly seated in housing and cable ends i.e. you can properly select each gear.

Good luck :)

Thanks for the reply. I was assured the shifter is B&M. it was purchased off a person I know from a Porsche forum.

Cables are correctly seated and gear changes are no problem at all.
