Barton bracket question.

I ordered a barton bracket and had it delivered to a friend in Vermont. I just got here and opened it up and find the inner bushing looks cracked. Can someone who bought one please verify?

It's not cracked, it's split by design. That's how it slips over the shifter extension. Look on youtube, there are install instructions listed there. Watch them and you'll be good to go.

MrMike: How is your Barton bracket? I just received mine today and can't wait to install it. How do you find shifting from 2-3rd with the new bracket and the stock shifter?

BYTHEWAY! Be careful not to overtighten the bracket to the two studs welded to the frame of the car. I did so very slightly and they cracked the bolt. Its not a hard fix, but just painful.

Oh and btw to answer your question about the shifting; Once its breaks in, its like butter. My friend had done the same mod but also changed the trans fluid, and THAT makes it even more worthwhile; especially in the colder climates where our shifter is notchy downshifting.

Nah, I got no idea. His was also the 5.0 which even though it shares the same tranny, im not too positive on the same fluid and what not. But when in doubt, whip royal purple out!

If u really wanna fix the 2-3 shift buy whitelines transmission bushing. It makes some more noise (very subtle) but fixes the 2-3.
