    Just wandering if when twin sticking the 205 is it normal practice to have to trim the tab off the end of the rear shift rail so it doesnt hit the adapter plate?

    Yeah Iam going to BF. I should be there sometime Fri. after work.
    I didnt take any pics of it but I pulled the 205 out trimmed off the tab put it back in the rig and now it shifts fine. I was just wandering if this is common?

    I didn't have to -- it was dayyyum close, but there's the indent on the doubler that made it all fit.

    Maybe your rod has more travel than mine (as it were :haha: )

    Here's a pic of the notched area I'm talking about, and then a pic of my stick setup ... maybe you mean the end of the tab I've circled?

    Mine looked different than that. There was a piece that stuck out about 1/4 to 3/8" and pointed towards the front shift rail about 3/4". There was no open notch at the end of the rail.

    Your shift rail on the '205 did, or the stuff ORD sent you did?

    Maybe the twin stick kit is different than the triple?

    I donno much about '205's, I got this one all set up. Gotta love it when stuff changes :crazy: :confused:

    Really early 205's had the tab welded to then end of the shift rail and it has to be cut off to get into high gear. We talked about this earlier, just thought I'd throw it up here for more info.
