roll EA to EB T Bar

Jack,

I remember reading in your story about changing the EA's ugly T Bar to the better looking EB item.
What exactly did you have to change etc? was it pretty straight forward?

simple

Unwind old Tbar, wind on new one. You will probably have to undo the nut at the base too......

But buttons, thread and all that is exactly the same

Yep that's right. The only problem I had was that when screwed in all the way, the EB bar typically wasn't aligned straight. My mechanic fixed that for free but I'm not sure exactly how...

HAHAHAHA.. Love the sig sick EA.

When my EA was auto I fitted an aftermarket gear leaver. It was like a straight rod, with a button on the top. Looked ok. Oh, and I also put on a T bar from an ED but it didnt match the interiour.

Its as easy as pie!

Jack,

your mechanice probably unwound the handle a touch, then wound the nut underneath so it touched the handle again. I think one is a left hand thread, the other is right, so when you have desired position with handle, you tighten up the little nut so it cant twist any further.....

I put mine on a angle anyway, feels sooooo much better IMO, just looks a bit gay from passengers seat. But they aint drivin, so who gives a toss.

Well if you are tightening that bolt up from under neath, make sure you put a cloth the spanner or what ever you use so you don't scratch the paint off the bolt.

Sorry, I'm a perfectionist hehe.
