Berg Shifter Question

Hi
Looking at berg shifters, would one that's fits a 65 also fit a 67 split?
The berg website goes from mid 60 to 66 and then 67 -79, I think bay shifters are different so not sure if a "65" one would fit.

Thanks

Rich

Re: CSP vs Vintage Speed Exhaust

I went with a BAS system via Stateside Tuning as they said the VS stuff was pretty poor, initially on a 1641 but now on a 2084. VS is cheap and sound ok (although perhaps too loud for many), but for longevity and performance others are better. So I'm told. Not direct experience of VS.

Re: Oil leak

Not that I know of, It sounds a though it's an installation issue if you've replaced it and it still leaks. could try a viton seal from 'simply bearings'. "70x90x10mm SC / R21 Single Lip Viton Rubber Metric Rotary Shaft Oil Seal with Garter Spring (70x90x10_SC_VI)". Viton is designed for the higher ...

Re: Help on advise what I need to lower my 67 splitty

Depends what your budget is really, list of options as long as your arm. From "cut and turn"/knock centres out to red9. So many options for discs depending on budget and bolt pattern. Some good stickys up top on all this I think. Quickest way is a new beam, dropped spindles, csp type disc kit and st...

Re: Rear Tracking

Would highly recommend Jim to do your tracking and alignment etc, made a world of difference on our bus. He asked the sort of use it gets and set it up with that in mind, I.e. fully loaded camper vs show/day use etc. So that with/without load it was spot on.

Re: Narrowed ARB dimensions

Yes, should be 84mm as you say, but worth cutting it then offering it up to the beam to make sure. You may find a little more or less enables it to fit better.

Re: Spring plates

In the photo your tyre looks a little close to the spring plate. Check it's not rubbing on the upper part of the frame. With a combination of inner and outer splines you can set the ride height to +/- 5mm / 1/4" ish. so it's not a case of just 1 or 2 splines up or down, (1 spline is quite a bit!). I...

i have used the Solenoid from Reigan for the last few years, no trouble.

Re: Re-oil

The first number i.e. 20W is an indication of it's viscosity when cold (very cold!), the 2nd number is an indication when it's hot, 100deg C + You don't want it too thin when cold, 10W to 20W is fine. You want it reasonably thick when hot for old air cooled stuff, so 40 - 60. (30 grades probably fin...

Re: Empi quick shift vs stock gearstick

Hi There should be a plastic half ball which sits just above the original metal half ball/collar (slides down the gear stick from the top) which forms the swivel in the original socket. The plastic half ball should be the same height as the EMPI base plate so that the end of the gear stick is in the...
