I heard you can shorten the 5-speed shifters that come with the Getrags that (OGTS) sells. Has anyone done this? Is it as easy as cutting a piece out of the shaft then rewelding??

Shorter shifter

Yes, you can cut off some of the shifter. After the original knob is removed , I cut off the knurled section (it's about 2 inches). I would not cut any more than this because you may have trouble installing the replacement knob.

cool

cool, thanks. That's what I was looking for. No other mods I need to watch out for? Just cut and that's all? I guess I could get another one if I screw it up.. :rolleyes:
