Update! After a couple years sitting in Tulsa my transmission made the trip home a couple months ago. I had it for sale for a while thinking it was not needed given the current state of the lakester. After dealing with many tire kickers on the tranny and tripping over it in the shop it has grown on me. Slowly digging out that corner of the shop and starting progress on the car. Need SOMETHING to get me off the fence it and other projects. There is NO timeline. I will be on the salt again this year with Tim.

Glad to hear you're getting back on the horse.   Tackle it one issue at a time... you'll get there.

Yeah, thats right Fred. Wink

1st order of business is how to shift the Doug Nash with the Long shifter 8 feet behind my head? Talking to Paul @Liberty he mentioned that Craig used to sell an electronic shifter setup before it was outlawed at the drags so that is one option. The simple angle is a rod or Morse cable since the shifter simply moves back and forth.

You can't beat a simple cable for reliability, I have a cut down (free) boat steering cable getting the 10ft from shifter to trans connected.

Trent -

I know that feeling that a languishing project can have on a person.

There isn't a person on these boards who hasn't been where you are with some project or endeavor.

Do yourself a favor.

Start at the beginning of your build diary and read it.

Then realize HOW MUCH YOU HAVE ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED . . .

clean out the garage . . .

and then getyourassbackonit.  cheers

Mike, don't feel bad, we LIVE in our shop. The only thing that bugs Carla is the grinder smell.

   Tim,
   We use air valves and an air cyl. and a couple of buttons. Works great. The driver just has to remember which way to push or pull and which button to push. [At 200 MPH]. Seriously, PM me if you have questions.

Trent - the car in my avatar uses a Long V-gate shifter and Morse cables. Since it's a V-gate, it doesn't need too much thinking to operate, so I made it left-hand which eliminates monkey-motion linkage and/or long U-turning cables. Baum Hydraulics in Nebraska makes great custom cables and has great pricing and service. I've found that 1/4" is as big as I need to shift a Jerico.
