  • Jason how about that part by part short shifter install?

    A while back someone asked for pictures of the OBX shifter install part by part. I just got mine and I want to install it. I looked up the order online and everything is clear other then the way the plate nut and spacer works. From the pictures online and from the pictures on your site I cant tell how they work. I'm going to install it tomorrow so I figured I might as well ask now instead of when I have everything apart. That way I can use this thread if I hit some dead end. I read some post where people said the shifter was loose and wobbly after they installed it.

    Here are some links I was looking at. ... Shift2.jpg ... sshift.jpg[/b]

    It's very simple:

    Aluminum spacer, wave washer, stock shifter cup, shifter rod, plastic spacer, top plate. Except for dremeling out the stock bushing and getting longer screws it installs just that easily.

    2000 Nissan Maxima SE (Daily Driver)

    In an ideal world I would have all ten fingers on my left hand, so my right hand could just be a fist for punching.

        The top plate that screws on... it pushes down and holds everything in place.

          Okay here is the install. Like you said easy shit. The only thing I could have been warned about was the second ring. That fucker flew out and almost took my eye out.

                  I swear, if people would look at things and try to figure them out for a second they would know the order the parts would need to go in...
