Re: Servicing A Hurst Shifter
Great article! There are some youtube videos on this, but personally I find it easier to refer to a series of photos and instructions like this. I'm in the middle of rebuilding mine right now.
The only thing I would like to add is that for the various shims and levers, I went to Harbor Freight and bought a cheap electric engraver for $8. I used it to put a small number (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) at the top of each piece as I removed it from the stack, before dumping it in the bucket of parts cleaner. This will insure that I not only get them all back in the right order, but they will also be flipped the same way. Obviously the direction is important for the levers. Not sure for the shims, but this takes the guesswork out.
