I have chopped the top, just curious on the bottom part where that ball is. How far up can I cut to get that actual "true" short shift? I was thinkg about taking it up about .5 - 1.2 inchs

No, it's been done several times before, I've lengthened my top part of it and it actually feels better. Now the bottom part is what determed the actual short throw and I remember them saying something about bring it up or so after pre-heating the metal but ****, i'm stumped on that.

**** THAT!!!! 99.99 plus 30 bucks shipping... Piss on that dude!! I will be going to the weld shop tomorrow and I will tell you exactly how much it will cost for thiem to build be a gauge plate for the stock area. Also it will only cost me $!75.00 for ALL gauges but the tach/speedo.... That's like another 119 so like 250.00 shipped for all gauges and I will tell you the cost of the custom gauge plate tomorrow.

Short throw shifters are longer on the botom under the fulcrum. That is what makes it a real short throw. the top moves a little less, while the bottom moves alot more.

See I thought it was taking it up or making a little bit longer I could remeber any longer. Ok great that's good info and "Fulcrum" is that name I was looking for too. The name reminds me of a old old cartoon from waaay back in the early 80's... "Voltron". I will be heading to the weld shop in a few minutes for that and to see the price of the custom gauge panel for my speedo and the rest of the gauges.
