    I've found that it's best if you put the shifter & the trans detent in one of the middle gears & adjust the cable there, as opposed to putting it in park or low. It makes it a little easier to get it exact, if it isn't at one end of the throw or the other.

    Thank-you for taking the time out to reply, Stephan , I ended up putting old shift cable back in,it worked fine with the band aide i put on it untill i was able to get to the scrap yard and find a good factory used one , (which was still attached but worn thru where heal of boot hits floor from gas petal,hole thru floor mat as well ,lol) , it turns out that it wasnt adjustments or instalation ,but just poor quality cable(one broke and the other one kept jamming) that" Standard" (the company name) has on the market as a replacement (seen pedal bike cables thicker and of better quality ,lol , and they want $220.00 canadian for it) anyhow have a good one......

    holy crap $220. for a shift cable!! I guess I'm going to start taking better care of mine & if it ever breaks I'll just cut a hole in the floor & tape a stick to the lever to shift it ha ha ha Glad you got it fixed....
