The length of the rod was perfect, but the offset was incorrect. Basically the linkage offset was about 1.5 inches less than it should have been. You can see in this image that I had to initially use a long post on the trans lever to reach the linkage. Also in the image you see a coat hanger that I bent to the proper linkage dimensions. I would have had to bend and thread a new rod.

His picture is of the initial "incorrect" linkage... they sent him a new one, the correct one. No pics of that. Yet.

I love projects that take twice as much effort as should be needed. Should be an Airhead motto. (disston)
