I just purchased the URD short throw kit for my 6 speed. I am reading the installation instructions and one thing worries me:
"Use a center punch to stake the setscrews. This is done by
placing the shifter extension flat in a vice or on an anvil and
tap the metal just outside of the threaded hole that the
setscrew goes into. Take care not to damage the tip ball.
This will peen the opening over and permanently lock the
setscrews into the shifter so they cannot back out.
There is a lot of high frequency vibration in the transmission
from the gears and other rotating assemblies. Staking the
setscrews will make certain that the setscrews cannot back
out and fall into the transmission"
Staking the stock components doesn't sit right with me. I was hoping this would be reversible at some point.
Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions on this? Is this a mod that cannot be undone? Please advice,
