Lost a clip today on one of my rods.
Those things go on/come off to easy.
Would a washer(to take up the slack)and a cotter pin be a bad idea?

some of the cotter pins are made of really soft metal..watch what you use but I don't see a problem.

I've used the steel push pins then bent the end around once I got it set.

Maybe just safety wire them on.

i always hated those rings....... look on mcmasters site under cotter pins there are other locking type clips that might be worth looking into

The Hurst ones work fine if they haven't been abused, If they're functioning correctly they're a cunt to get off/on.......get new ones :)

I always used an AN washer as they fit really nice to the shifter arm and had a smaller OD that didn’t interfere with the clip

Ever the wise one. Be realistic, do you have any idea of the percentages of HURST shifter assemblies that can be fitted with straight shaft rods?...................... There's a reason HURST rods are bent, hardened and big time specific. I never heard of anyone fitting any spherical rod ends to factory HURSTs
Hurst had steel bushing kits to replace the nylon bushings.


What he said.
