    You need to remove the tailshaft in order to swap the drive gear. Not really a fun job

    after more and more searching (last 2hrs) it is the original hurst shifter design. It's prolly time to upgrade that part as it has some play on the left side(1st and 2nd). but i will keep it as a classic part no doubt.

    Yup, go steeda triax or pro 5.0. They both have the spring loaded mechanism to help with the 2-3 shift that the old hurst still had trouble with
