Shifter brace

Post by digr »



I made my own brace to save some money, I figure I made about 50 cents per hour :shock:

Looks good.
I know about the labor cost.I think I lost money making mine way back in 2011.viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9365
Different design but has the same results.Secure the shifter shaft from lateral movement by supporting the shaft at 2 points.One at the block and the other on the opposite side of the torque lever.
Works Everytime.Stops the flagpole wobble.

Looks like it'll do the trick.

Made mine in '14, buddy liked it, told buddy it was worth ordering his.
I used 1.1417" or 29mm and 0.6299" or 16mm.
