When I cut the shifter out to accept the bushing I moved the pivot point up to get a little longer throw out of it. Then just welded them together. The bolt will go through the shifter bushing and sides of the shifter box.

I have found that the exact same throw on both ends works better with direct linkages. I built a gs500e Suzuki powered golf cart also.

It could be the cable I'm using is not stout enough but its what I had. I ordered a threaded heim connector which will I will add to one end to give me some adjustability, which I don't have now. If I still have issues after all this I will ditch the cable and rig up some steel rod.

It needs to be the Morse style cables. I don’t know what you have.

They are also used on aftermarket shifters.
