This tip came from John Schwartz. When installing the small triangle shaped rear cover plate, set it in loose and check the 5 bolt holes that secure the selector cover. If they don't line up true, loosen the 19 mm lock nut on the adjusting screw and rotate as required to line the bolt holes up. This insures that the shift lever may stroke in both directions when shifting.
