Hello, Richard. Did the rubber bushing idea I gave you not work out? I found a website that has wave washers for sale, they may help some more. I'll attach it, also, feel free to call me whenever if I can do anything to help. If you need my number, PM me or email me and I'll be happy to give it to you.
https://www.seastrom-mfg.com/washerr...+Spring+Washer

That's a link to the website with the wave washers. If they don't have one you're looking for, I saw a few other places online and they don't seem to be very expensive. Anyways, good luck with further production, Richard!

The wave washer is a good idea, I had thought of it earlier but failed to follow up. Your vender does have an item that could be made to fit. It's just that I have to buy 10 without knowing if it will work. Oh yea, they are 12.50 each if you buy 10.
I'm trying an O-ring now. Doing a test on that tomorrow.

Any luck with the washer? And, that's just a vendor I googled for- you're more than welcome to find your own, it won't hurt my feelings any. :P. But, if you know the dimensions, maybe you can find just one or two somewhere to try and see. The wave washer is what the factory uses. Factory also uses a spherical upper pivot point, not an offset one.

I've looked at other vendors. But i've got an O-ring part to try I just need a car. My tester last week had problems and couldn't get here. I'd send it out but it's going to need some tuning to get right.

Are there any cars out there with Axialflow shifters who want to come by?

Any updates? I really want to get this shifter back in the car. It's a pretty expensive paperweight at the moment.

Well I've come up with an O-ring that goes around the outside of the upper bearing after beveling the od. Just haven't been able to test it.

Hi Richard, I emailed you a few weeks ago but no response. Any news on the updated shifter? If you need me to come over again, I'm sure we could work it out.

The parts are ready, Email me and I'll send you one to see if it works.
Also the new batch of 2.3 units are almost done (end of the week) and they will have an improved lockout and the O-ring top bearing. There are about 15 left not yet sold.
If everything works out there will be extra upper bearing parts for anyone with 2.1 or 2.2 that is having vibration problems.

I forgot to post my new Email for those who want a new part.
[email protected]

Matt,
I think we need your car again to test these.
Now that they are done I noticed something.

I know there has to be someone closer but have not made contact.

For those who get the few I'm mailing today:
Take the split O-ring that is taped on and put it in the groove of the upper bearing before installing the retainer plate. I cut them so they would not jump out before being clamped down.

Anyway that's why we need a test car. Also the lockout is wider and I don't know how it's going to act on the install.

For those who wrote about ordering you can just use the Website.

Yes, I would like to see the 2.3 in action. (I've shipped 5 just on faith.) I also want to see the retrofit part working.
I've moved since you were here last. Not far but call or email for new address.
I have nowhere else to be so make it easy on yourself.
I just got back from a road trip to Az so I'm traveled out.
I took my new Mini Cooper S and that was a blast. Even in the high winds the little thing ran great at 90 for hours. Burning half what an Rx8 would in fuel and no oil.
What a change! I love that thing. Admit it doesn't have much room in it, handles like a go kart and rides like one too.

I was tempted to get one of those a while back, they look like a lot of fun! I responded to your P.M. I can come over tonight after work 8-830ish. I will call after work for your new address.

Cya Tonight, Matt

I think I need the updated pieces too - I was the one that tested the original, but ended up taking it out because of the lockout positioning for reverse... Pretty sure it was the 2.1 - are there additional pieces that can be used to correct the lockout for reverse and how it gets into 1st?

Thanks,

PCS
