      Look's good, Ive done probably 50 of these myself would be nice to make a dvd I guess. All the shim's and shift arms are available too. Again, nice work!

      Thanks for your help with it too Kim. Notice I left out the PITA stick part?? LOL
      As I mentioned that bugger is back home and still in pieces!

      When I got the shims etc from Brewers I emailed them the pics with showing the differences...I got a reply back in 5 minutes. Quick reply/ great service from them. Entire rebuild kits are pricy and I could have probably reused the originals, but I figgered Id spend the $ as it wasnt too pricy for the parts I used.

      Thanks Rob, you ever seen a "Plus" without the stop bolts?? I know I started a thread a while back about differences in 2 shifters I have and apparently the "Plus" has stop bolts?? Also the reverse rod doesnt have an "alignment" hole??

      I cannot remember on the reverse adjustment hole but all of them I have done had the stop bolts. Seen a few Mr Gasket and Sparkomatic that did not.

      question.. in the first picture, there is a square hole towards the top of the shifter on the side. the other side is circle i believe, do you by chance have a picture of the bolt that goes into that hole? i am missing mine and cant get the shifter to go into reverse without sticking something in that hole..

      Here are some pics, sorry I dont have one of the bolt removed....It is a smaller version of a carriage bolt. I believe its 1/4" or 5/16" with nylon lock nut then plate, really thin washer and the bolt.

      Actually there it is in the 2nd pic with nut n plate attached. Not sure if this will help the reverse issues though. Lemme know if you need more pics.

      Oh yeah, call Brewers Performance, they have everything you need.

      Yep, note the washer(fiber/nylon) I think goes behind the plate. Also plate has a slight bend in it.
