Unfortunately, the 9-pin connector is a special production which are not to buy commercially. Protected by a screw connection and strain relief, however, this cable should provide many years of reliable operation.
Here, however, you should be careful to protect the thread of the shift rod, since most knobs are fixed by a screw, which could damage the thread. Plastic caps are supplied, but offer little protection. However, there is also the possibility of using the small bore in the shift rail for fastening, if provided from the knob.
Tip: If you screw a metal shell – available in any well-stocked DIY store – at the bar, so you can fix the shift knob safely.
This is made possible by a spring mechanism on the bottom, which returns the shift rod after shifting to the center position.
Unfortunately, they have failed to protect the table edge also with such a protective equip. But the resourceful OCinside users there knows how to certainly help to protect his table edge. After mounting, the unit is fixed bombproof at the table and can not even be moved by heated switching maneuvers.
At the bottom there is a large hole where the connecting cable is led out. The interesting thing is that this is large enough to push the connector end through also. This is to remove the entire “inner section” after removing the circuit board and a further cover.
Laterally there is an opening that has caught our attention. Behind can be seen, in the standard position of the shift gate, a large screw, by which you can adjust the resistance of the shift rod. From pony-soft to rock-hard you can tweak to the individual needs.
