Did she get you JUST the short shifter? Is it JHM or ebay?

Unlike the 6 speed on the 01E, you just center it and tighten down the hex. You then proceed to check throw between each gear. You want to try and have the same amount of throw between each gear and equal side to side extension. Keep loosening and tightening till you have it about dialed in.

I have been holding out fixing mine since my tranny swap. Not perfect so sometimes it's difficult for me to get gear in reverse.

Also have a short shifter in my eBay watch list. I have the one many members here have recommended.

Protip, space out the small bushings in the bottom if the shift lever so that they touch the inside edge of the blue fork thing. Gets rid of a ton of side to side slop that everyone complains about.

I actually used very thin washers on both sides that worked well. Definitely a good idea.
