The shim mod can actually promote misalignment rather than reverse it.

I used this setup to pound out over 100 dragstrip passes. pretty solid, even if the addup was close to what a full shifter would have cost.
Can you provide me more information on the MGW arm bushing? I heard about it over a year ago and I tried googling to find the information with no results. I have done quite a bit to help the transmission shift easier and not miss gears. I still have to really take my time at high rpms to get the shifter into 5th from 4th. And I think sometimes also 3rd to 4th. I wish I would have gone the route of MG race spec shifter now but I don't want to spend more money on a shifter.
