Does anybody have a copy of the directions or even a picture of the assembled parts. I just want to make sure I am putting together the linkage as intended. Thanks!

I think I got it. Pic on the net and trial and error. There were a couple different size bolts that could fit a couple places.

Mocking up the linkage to a 915 trans.

Wow never thought that was where this was going. Figured it was for your EG build. Hey that looks great. Presume you have one of these for the EG build also (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

This is the one for the suby build. I just wanted to see if it might work for the 915 before I start buying parts.

First thanks you, trying to help, been down that rabbit hole a time or two.

Second, I think this could work for the 915 boxes, but some of ht angles get a bit odd, I would prefer to keep then as close to 90 degrees as possible. Though it might not matter, won't know until you try. The 90 degree thing comes from the ideal fulcrum points great angles will increase the force and lengthen the throw to the desired movement.

Nice find Mark, I knew I had seen it somewhere and it was a premade part.

Yes, I do have a concern about correct angles and ratios. This was just to see if I could be in the ballpark. I’m hoping I can figure out an alternative to the Bott or Wevo 916 kit. They are $2,300-3,300 and still require a shift linkage. I think this may work but if it doesn’t, I’m only out a bit of time and some pieces of scrap metal. I’m no fabricator so using the suby gear will let me play with it without committing to having some unique parts made. I will probably need to use a non standard exhaust because of the tailshifter but first things first.

Cableshift has been around forever, but I have only heard of one person that was happy with it. PMS used to sell it, but now they are mainly pushing Wevo.
