Any one ever tried one of these? https://www.ebay.com...FkAAOSwE91eC5xh

I know a member in the past was making replacements but that predates my owner ships of a starquest and would like to remove the play in my shifter completely as I already have polarisman bushing and i still have a little bit more play than i would like.

You could upgrade to a short shifter and remove all play.

Ordered one, Ill let you know how it goes. My ball is completely missing.
I already have the polarisman bushing but still had too much play for my liking and i'm not that keen on short shifters.

Yeah, I get not liking a shorter shifter. My car has a Stedebani short shifter that the previous owner installed, and I found it to be too short for me at 6'1". I didn't like how far down and forward I needed to reach to shift; not very ergonomic. I put a 2" extension on top, and now it's perfect. Sure, the throws are longer, but it still feels good, and the position of the knob is right for me.

Just another option to consider if the fulcrum replacement doesn't work out. Good luck!

Odd.  I found a short shifter more comfortable (6'1") and actually cut it down a few inches.  Maybe my upper arm hangs lower tho :)

Yeah, odd. Is your seat adjusted all the way back? I had elbow tendonitis for a while too, I think that made me a little pickier about the shifter position being just right and not requiring me to fully extend my arm.

Yes, all the way back.

If it wasn't for the Momo hub and nrg quick release moving the steering wheel forward so far, i would still be hitting my knees on the wheel
