THE ORIGINATOR, NOT THE IMITATOR!


MSE PRODUCTS ARE BOLT ON; NO TRANSMISSION DISASSSEMBLY OR SPECIAL PARTS MADE. 

MSE Shifters are engineered ESPECIALLY for use with Volkswagen Transaxles.  Other shifters are not specifically made for Volkswagen Transaxles and may subject you to shifting problems. 

-The MSE Shifting System has been race proven since 1995. 

-It is used internationally to provide the fast, positive shifting that you need to be a winner.

-No more missed shifts, stuck in gear, hit reverse, and all of those other shifting problems you have had.

-Race proven nearly INDESTRUCTIBLE (Nearly anything can be destroyed one way or another). However, since 1995 we have never experienced any shifter breakage. So get the original, don’t be fooled by an inferior copy of our products.

-MSE WILL CURE YOUR SHIFTING PROBLEM!

-YOU’VE TRIED THE REST, NOW USE THE BEST!

Exclusive Features of MSE Shifters

Our In-Line Pistol Grip Shifter is used predominantly in drag racing; however, it can be used in other applications such as street, off road, etc.

The shifter function is rather simple: a separate rod controls the 1st & 2nd gear, the 3rd & 4th gear, and reverse. Coupled with the RLR/MSE Posi-Shift Housing this system eliminates the troublesome VW “Hockey” stick with three separate shift levers.
Not only will your shifts be more precise, you will be able to shift more quickly, the reason being that the V-Gate shifter eliminates the “H” pattern of a normal shifter. With simple “back, forward, and back again” shift motions, your e.t.s will drop with less shifting effort. This unique system is offered as a complete package with shifter, rods, and housing, or as separate components. Please specify Type1 or Type2 Posi-Shift Housing.

 

All high-stressed parts are made of 7075 T-6 aluminum. Other parts are 6061 T-6 and/or stainless steel.

All pivoting parts use SAE-841 Oil Impregnated bronze Oilite™ bushings and thrust washers which are self-lubricating and do not require lubrication. Oilite™ is used rather than aluminum to aluminum which is a very poor bearing surface and can lead to galling. Any wear would be on the bushings which are inexpensive and replaceable.

All aluminum parts are polished and treated to protect the surfaces and preserve the original appearance.

You will find this to be the strongest, most durable and best shifting light-weight shifter available. While it is not possible to obtain the strength and durability of our 4130 Chrome-Moly shifter parts, this shifter is designed to give you years of trouble-free service.

The new MSE shifter now has an integral reverse.  Reverse is selected with the same squeeze lever as forward gears.  A reverse block is used to avoid accidentally engaging reverse.

All shifters are equipped with a thumb operated switch to operate line lock or the component of your choice.

Troubleshooting

Shifting Troubles

 

THE FOLLOWING MAY CAUSE 2-3 SHIFT PROBLEMS

The 1 to 2 and 3 to 4 shifts are relatively easy to perform since the selector fork must only move the operating sleeve in a straight line from one gear to the next; however, the 2 to 3 shift is comparatively difficult.  Initially, 2nd gear must be disengaged by moving the operating sleeve from 2nd gear to neutral.  Conditions which will not allow the operating sleeve to properly disengage 2nd gear will create difficulty to engage 3rd gear.   The following are some conditions which have the potential to be problematic:

 1.  INCORRECT 1 AND 2 SHIFT LEVER IN SHIFTER – See enclosed information on how to identify the proper shift lever by measuring the top of the slot in the shift lever (should be approximately .460”).  Call me for identifications.

 

 

 2.  IMPROPER SHIFT ROD – If you have and aluminum rod for 1 and 2, it may be subject to flexing.  Replace it with a chromoly rod.  MSE has them in stock.

 

 

 

 3.  1 AND 2 SHIFT ROD NOT ADJUSTED TO OPTIMUM TO ACHIEVE THE 2 TO 3 SHIFT – Adjust as per enclosed information.  Call me for instructions.

 

 

 

 4. 1 AND 2 SHIFT FORK IMPROPERLY ADJUSTED – It must be adjusted to insure that the operating sleeve goes properly to neutral.  Better yet, adjust with more clearance on the 2nd gear side.  This will assure that 2nd gear is completely disengaged; however, be sure to have a minimum of .050” on the 1st gear side.

 

 

 

 5.  WORN SYNCRO. TEETH ON 3RD GEAR, OR WORN/ROUNDED PRO RING TEETH – Grind pro ring teeth as per manufacturer’s instructions.

 

 

 

6.  SHIFTER MUST BE MOUNTED SOLIDLY – Flex in the shifter mount may cause shifting problems.
