    Tired of cutting and welding for 3 hrs to make my own just for them to start spinning around a day later. Anyone got a new or used jose short throw laying around?

    I have been thru 3. Pretty basic design. Shorten top of shiftee, lengthen bottom, then add a spacer. Works great for 1 day, then the shifter starts doing the merry-go- round

    Tired of it. Just gonna have to bite the bill. Shosource just emailed me back. I asked about a used short shifter. They replied saying that they don't have any in stock. Although they are working on an improved Rod shifter that will likely have a shortened throw. They said it's still a couple of months or so before they will be available.
