I need to assemble one I bought from a member here...But it didnt have instructions...

Does anyone have a digital copy or any kind of assistance...

It seems you use the factory shifter plate/boot/etc...according to these pictures:

Here are the 'Fuel Injection Specialties' short shifter instructions.  This shifter is identical to the stedabani short shifter and are the same instructions I used recently to install my stedabani shifter.

To take it a bit further, here are a few photos:

Disassembly:

I found it easier to grind out these crimps than cut the hardened shaft like the instructions say.

And last to punch out the dowel pin.  This sucker is in there!  Note that my plastic retainer (the ball that goes around the dowel pin) is completely gone!  It must have disintegrated over the years and fell down into the transmission.

Assembly:

Here are some pics of the assembly.  I'm missing a few because in between the time of punching out the factory dowel pin and installing the new one, I managed to mash my thumb into something with the hammer.  To the point where I should have went for stitches, but instead continued on after wrapping it up.  So I wasn't as focused from this point on.  


Install the new retainer and dowel.  Make sure the dowel is a press fit!  You shouldn't be able to slide it in easily!

I only show the one gasket but there are four, two of the 3 bolt pattern and two of the 4 bolt.  Pretty self explanatory where they go.

It looks like I never took the final pictures prior to reassembly but one thing that I did in addition to the instructions was add some pins to the aluminum block to align to the transmission.  Note that the original rectangular plate has two dowel pins to index to the tranny.  When adding the aluminum spacer, the spacer has holes to accept the dowels on the steel plate..maintaining alignment between the shifter and the plate.  But there is nothing maintaining the alignment between the aluminum plate and the tranny!  I wasn't comfortable in the bolt hole slop controlling alignment so I added two M5 roll pins. I think they were around 1" long.   Hammered them into the aluminum plate until they contacted the dowels on the steel plate above.  Then cut them so they protruded from the plate about 3/16".  Had to use the four bolts to press in the pins on assembly to the trans which will make removal a bit of a job but I felt it was worth it.
