As Joe mentioned... be sure to use the Loc-Tite on the set screws. I installed mine just as the Hurst came out of the box and as everyone says, the shifting tension gets easier. Last week I thought I would try the lighter outer springs, I then found the set screws had backed out and were held in only by a half turn (could be why the shifting tension keep getting easier). On mine, there was no Loc-Tite on the set screws from the factory. I now have the lighter outer springs only and the shift tension is firm but not excessive.Joe Bruntz said:I love the Hurst shifter, like many of the others, I too changed to the lightest inner and outer springs, plus I loosened up the set screws to fine tune it. Be sure and put some loc-tite on the threads of the set screws. You don'w want them coming out.
