Installed the shifter last week. Love it.
I have a concern that I may have the linkage nut set to tight. The stock one was so easy it shocked me. I put it back on a little tighter.
Not cinched down though. Didn;t look like the bushings are compressing. The 1-2 shift is the tightest and notchiest of all. 2-3, 3-4, 4-3 glass smooth. How much more effort was needed to go from stock to Hurst. Basically how much is to much. Easy to put it words??????
You're looking for torque specs for the linkage?

Not really. I have heard 15lbs give or take. I re-read my thread and it is confusing...sorry. I expected the pull effort to be more. Not sure how to gauge to much based on the tightening of the nut. I tightened the nut down to the point that I feel comfortable that it won;t back off. But concerned it may be to tight. Did by feel not by torque wrench.The 1-2 shift is the one throwing the flag for this. It has quite a different feel than the other shifts. Thats is what is making me wonder. More of a sanity check question than anything. That shift takes more pull than the others.
The 1-2 shift is notchy with the Hurst so that sounds normal.
