Do I need the shift cable alignment tool for B&M ?

Recommended Posts

My B&M ssk should be here in a few days. So I've been trying to read as much as possible to have an easy install. I came across the thread about getting part #000 721 961 90 to check the alignment of the cables before installing the ssk. It sounds like a good thing to do just to make sure everything is perfect (although everthing feels fine shifting now). My question is when I place the tool on the oem shifter, how will I know what adjustments need to be made? Are there instructions with the tool? Any info would be great. Thanks.

No instructions come with the tool. If the cables are adjusted properly then it just snaps onto the shift tower. I use it only when I suspect the cables might not be adjusted properly. If no one has been playing around with your car and it shifts fine then there is no need to use the tool.

The tool only works with the oem shift. It will not fit on the B&M/Porsche 996 short shift.

When Porsche started selling the B&M clone I had hoped Porsche would come out with a new version of the tool that would work with B&M/Porsche. No such tool is in the 2004 tool catalog and at our tech session last week Peter checked the new tool bulletins and there was nothing.

This is me trying to put it on a B&M. Not even close.
