    an aftermarket linkage used for bseries swaps but you can adjust it by turning it like a screw on both rods

    the linkage is what goes from the shifter to your tranny. Why would you want this to be adjustable?? if its to short it wont reach the tranny, and if its to long it wont bolt up to the tranny. Now can you see where the confusion is coming??

    thats why its adjustable . pretty much good for all applications. to long ... turn it alittle and make it shorter.. to short turn it and make it longer. .. get the drift.
