Larry, Great idea. How well did it work?
Worked great, which is why I have shared it.
For me the hardest part of adjusting the linkage is the precision required when the turnbuckle jam nuts are tightened. Just a fraction of a degree of unintended rotation of the shift rod can be enough to create shifting difficulties.
My brackets prevent that unintended rotation, while also centering the shift arm front to rear and left to right
Larry - looks like the business.
I have previously messed around with wooden wedges with only middling success. I will make up a centering rig like this one .
I am about to pull out the dash and center console ( yet again ....) and am going to get rid of a badly notched gear shift lever with a new one from one from Mike M. A very nice replacement item I must say.
I have never been very happy with the final position of reverse selection which always winds up only 2/3rds up the gate, and reverse always seems to be difficult to select. I don't know if this is common. All the other selection positions are good OK. I will recheck the ZF selector box bolt clearances and penetrations as per suggestions from other posts , and I have already checked the reverse light switch penetration which seems OK .
Any other suggestions welcome!
You should find a machinist that can duplicate your device and then you should sell them. Every Pantera owner would buy one.
If its not too much trouble also could you post the dimensions of the restraint plate slot position ?
3D printers are pretty common now, this seems like something that would be easy made on one.
please post dimensions if you have them, I'll give it a try on my Mangusta
It's printing on my 3d printer as I type...
are the Mangusta & Pantera mounting holes the same?
Hi Brickdrifter - would you be able to export in STL (stereolithography) format and post it?
It may be a file export option you have ?
Thanks for posting the dimensioned sketch larry!
Good Day! Thanks all for sharing, this is a great tool. I have already downloaded the sketch and the STL ....hopefully I can use the gauge during the re-build this fall .
