New bearinged up shifter for the C14!
A ball bearing replacement set for the plastic sleeve bearing that is OEM. Inspired by a thread started on the concours.org/zggtr.org website by joefech. (More about Joe) Several people contacted me after the thread started to see if we could use Murphs conjuring to put together a practical kit, ready to install, or shifters all ready to change out. After a little sourcing and some machined spacers we have a product!
The do it yourself kit comes with all the needed bearings, spacers, and shims, plus instructions on our Knowledge Base page. .We also will do the change over in-house using your shifter, or send you a factory fresh shifter, with rubber toe boot and the bearinged up shifter parts installed and ready to go.
You choose which way you want to go! The price above is for the basic kit of parts. Choose from the drop down option list whether you want this, or one of the other choices. You'll see the additional cost listed there.
Of course, shipping to any of the lower 48 states is included in the price!
We have discovered that the tolerance on the bore for the sleeve varies enough that some shifters do not have a friction fit between the shifter and the bearings , so please note YOU MAY HAVE TO LOCK-TITE the bearings to the shifter. We have also discontinued supplying the kit with the small Button head screw, and only recommend using the washer head bolt supplied with the kit.
