Figure 37. One bad thing about the AA kit, the holes in the shifter pads for the male heim joints were full of rust and not cut very well. Both of them had to have the threads cleaned up so the heim joints would screw in far enough. Without doing this, they would not go in any further than a half an inch.

Figure 38. Install the set screw into one of the two pivot shoulder bolts, then install it in the bracket. Put on the other pivot shoulder bolt and tight them up. Install the shift rods using the flat washers, lock washers, and nuts on the pivot bolts. Align the heim joints so the eyes are parallel with their respective shift rails. Install the linkage plates and shoulder bolts. Tighten up the heim joint jam nuts. Install the knobs of your choice, and the shifter is installed.
