sr short shifter and bracket install

hey all so I looked at the YouTube video provided by am for the above install but they removed the driveshaft!!!! I was like wth I was underneath and the installation seems difficult. anyway, is it easy to remove driveshaft? I'm fed up w it lol may just go to a shop for install. also for those who have removed the rubber boot, how do u put it back te same way? all nice and tight?

You don't need to remove the driveshaft.

it's too difficult without it or a lift. ds is a major interference

If you have extensions and a swivel you should be in good shape. I would not remove the ds, that would be a pain in the ***. The boot should be shoved all the way in and then start with the back and work it up slowly until you feel it kinda pop into place as it fits in a channel or groove. You have to go slow or you will pour gas on the entire car and blow it up.

If you have stock springs and DS its easy. I backed my car on the ramps then used a floor jack to lift the body to give me the needed clearance. This was done when I had a bigger diameter DS and the SR Springs. I installed the Barton one piece bracket. I rather not remove the DS if I didnt need to. Little more time involved but easy

This. A friend of mine installed bracket for me - I guess I backed my car on ramps and used a jack for front. You DON'T need to remove driveshaft at all, just use extention and swivel. Checkout Barton shifter and bracket instal video by CJ pony parts, they have it laid out purdy clear. Once the bracket is off, put your shifter in, bolt it up and then install your bracket.

TIP: do use 2 washers (#45?) Underneath the shifter on each hole. You need to lift up your shifter a bit. Why? Cuz if you don't, within a few weeks the shifter spring is gonna get spongy and you will lose your reverse lockout + clear distinction between 1 and 3rd gear. Ask me how I know..

It was a major pain in the arse when you're the first one at traffic lights and instead of going forward, you end up going back - fcukin reverse gear! And it times it would go into 3rd, since 1st and 3rd are quite close. None of this happened once I had my shifter raised.

Not about being afraid. It's just not necessary and really it's wasted time for a bracket and short throw install. I think my Barton went in from start to finish in 30 min tops.

Did he put washers underneath your shifter or not? Something you need for sure with SR shifters

The install is strait forward. First you remove the stock bracket using a socket wrench, I guess you've already done that, then put the new bracket on using grease or hot water to slip the bushing on. No need to take off the drive shaft, just just have to maneuver around it. Before you tighten the bolts on the bracket you have to let it hang loose to install the shifter. The reason you keep it loose for the shifter install is because there is one bolt that holds the shifter that is more easily accessible if the bracket is loose allowing the shifter to hang down a little.

it's been two weeks and the noise is still there... there's like a clink or clank sound when shifting into gears is this normal? is this damaging the transmission in any way?

Are you saying this noise is common? I have a Barton shifter and bracket and I don't and didn't notice any kind of noise. This is a great set up BTW.

Yea from what ive read on this site and some product reviews. My shifter was alot louder when I first installed my bracket. Its no longer noisy after a few months of service. Great mod and a must for the mt82 crew. I have the orginal Barton bracket the two post may be quieter.

Welcome to the world of SR shifter problems lol. I'd take out that POS and get rid of it as soon as I can. I would have if i didnt trade my 3.7 for v8. It came to a point where shifts got super notchy, and I was getting locked out of gear 2 and/or 3.. And I wasn't over 5000 rpms! You're better off using your stock shifter with just a bracket, or save up and get a MGW.

i think I've already accustomed myself to it... my gripe is is it really going to damage the synchros or what? most of the time I shift okay...
