Figure 35. Now the Advance Adapters Twin-Stick shifter kit will be installed. We begin by installing these plastic bushings on both sides of each shifter shaft. They go in easily with a slight tap from a plastic hammer.

Figure 36. The new shift rails provided with the kit are threaded 3/8-24 instead of being notched like the factory rails are. The shifter kit rails do NOT have the clearance notch for the 4:1 gearset that is needed. Our gearset came with a notched shift rail that had the clearance notch in it. This was taken to the machine shop and cut down and threaded to be the same as the AA shift rail. The AA shift rails are the ONLY place you can get a replacement passenger side shifter rail. No other company is making them at this time. The driver side rail is readily available. To proceed with the installation, install the jam nuts on each shift rail then install the provided heim joints. do not tighten them up at this time.
