Hi everybody,
Please, any suggestions about a "short shift kit"?
I'm trying to find something to install on my '72, but I cannot find anything around....

Thanks for the tips!

I would certainly start by rebuilding the shift linkage, it wears out especially in the rear, where the rear shift rod hooks to the shift lever that goes into the tail cover, Also the tunnel rod spot welds break and the shifter lock out plate wears. After you re weld and rebush may be you will be satisfied with the action and not want to put the short shift in (which just changes the angle of the throw not fixing any pre existing slop)

Fortunately nothing was broken, just the bushing was bad.
Now everything is running fine, but I still would like to make it a little shorter...

if no slop then yes like the first suggestion weltmeister, they make the complete handle as well as the glue on bottom part
