    But...you never told us how the shifter now works.

    Carl, I hope I don't jinx anything, but the shifting is now 'buttery smooth'. Easy and precise shifting both up and down the gears...including reverse which used to be nearly impossible to find.
    I did learn one more thing along the way...that it's very important to adjust the location of the lollipop (front to back) with respect to the shift rod that connects to it. At first, I had the shift rod bolted to the lollipop too far forward and couldn't even find reverse gear when sitting in the driver's seat. It took a few tries but finally got it just right :) I hope this tread along with the pictures can help others, if needed :)
