How To: keep your reverse lockout

TO PUT A GS SHIFTER IN YOUR GT

if anyone has been following my other thread on the Ralco short shifter on the GT and it was a sucess. Ralco is the new TWM for half the price. i wanted to do a big how to with lots of pictures but i was a little unprepared and my camera died after like 2 pictures so im gonna make do.



the short shifter is 1 1/4" shorter from the top of the ball to the end of the threads. this lenght or some of it needs to be taken out of the plastic reverse lockout piece.

looks like this:




the bottom plastic tab that sticks out and goes over a ledge that allows you to get to reverse, so you need to cut just above there and take out enought so that it is just below the slot where you took out the pin. that slot will also need to be extended but not by much just below the o-ring.



attach the the bottom tab using some epoxy resin (i also drilled a couple small holes and threaded threw some small wire and twisted it cuz i didnt wait till the resin was dry but will add strength). now last you need to drill a hole through the short shifter 3/8" above that metal thickness change for your guide pin.

now just need to re-assemble, my pins where re-usable but you can use a nail as a substitute if you have to. for the spring that pushes down on the lock out i just cut a piece of copper tube to slip down and put tension on the spring when you tighten down the shift knob. if you wanted you can drill another hole but this seemed easyier.

So it wasnt difficult at all to do this part? did the reverse lockout it comes with not work or is it just better to keep the OEM lockout?

I just ordered mine $55 shipped is the reason i ask and im installing next weekend if it makes it in during next week.

OEm is the only reverse lockout out there right now, psy-q is slowly working on an after market aluminum one the last time i check so for now you just gotta cut a chunk out of your stock one which does the trick.

well the reason i asked is because in the picture i thought i saw that the Ralco shifter had something that looked like a reverse lockout but im not positive about that. Im talking about that metal piece ive seen in some of the pictures. I dont know if its a picture of a shifter for another car with similar contents or if its actually included

no, all that comes with the shifter is the shifter, a metal U shaped tool for taking out the teflon ball on the bottom and 4 aluminum bushings to replace the rubber ones. thats for the GS, if u get the one for the GT it gets some tools to remove the pins for the reverse lockout but the GT shifter does not have as much reduced throw which is a downfall

just did my install and know what you mean. I was a little disappointed because i wanted mine to sit as low as the WRX short shifter is in my brothers car and it wasnt. I still like it though and now i just need to get a shift knob for the shifter.

I didn't do any cutting to the reverse lockout though. was the cutting part for clearance? I looked at it for a while and the holes that were pre made for the shifter matched up directly and i just put it in the way it was.

It worked out just fine with my shifter.

ya you probably havent read any other post regarding short throw shifters, this is for putting a GS shifter in a GT and keeping the lockout and gaining more throw
