Long vertical gate shifter

Post by jacksoni » Thu Aug 25, 2016 12:13 pm

I have a Long (GForce) vertical gate shifter on my Richmond 5 Speed (Gforce makes similar trans as well as others). It works fine, but...
Twice the shifter has broken the 1-2 shifter arm, not during a shift (that I can tell) but sometime during a run. The arm is about 1.25"x.25" and is hardened steel. It has broken identically both times- at a bend. The first time Long fixed it no charge. Haven't been in touch yet as still unloading/recovering from Bonneville. Has anyone else had such issues? (we eventually disassembled and welded it at the track and it seems OK for now)
