Hey guys, I'm going to be taking my shift linkage out tonite, but I have a couple questions. The 8 mm spring pin, is it 8mm wide? or is it 8 mm long? Confused about that. And does it go through the retainer as well? Also, about the circled green part, I'm using the helms manual for everything, but what exactly does 8 x 1.25 mm mean as far as the bolt or nut is concerned? Thanks for all your help.
