Short shift

Postby Jack92 » Sat Feb 03, 2018 9:32 pm

Hey guys,

Just been looking at short shifters and I’ve come across this..

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2356472742

I can’t help but think it looks strange isn’t it meant to be like the following?

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2851249704

Just curious why they are different or am I missing something obvious?

got to be honest where that needs to bolt onto its not going to work as the one end of the shaft that would accept that kind of fitting is where the captive ball sits????
the other end is welded on so not interchanable and is the reason why https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2851249704
has the shaft attached.


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!

Odd that first one. It's a mk2 Golf item but doesn't even have the range of holes that most short shifters have.

no the one in my link was just to prove it doesn't fit
