Okay, i have a bert tranny that is popping out of high gear when you let off the gas getting in the corner. Called bert they said this is normal as the older non dog tooth trannys wear. Bought the shifter that locks it into high gear. My question is does anyone else have this problem, and did the lock out shifter fix it? Also if anyone has a pic of how the shifter is supposed to install that would be great. Thanks in advance.

we have an older (3 or 4 year old) bert but it only pops out of Low when you let off the gas.

We had this problem with our car and the shifter did fix the problem. They told me at Bert that I needed one of these shifters when I got my new tranny so I guess they know this is a problem, too.

Check your adjustment on the heim for high gear. You may find that it is not engaging all the way in, Hope this helps.

I have attached a few pictures of how I mounted the shifter for my bert trans.
Also I extended my shifter to a regular two lever shifter so I don't have to reach so far to shift. http://duricaracing.com/pictures/MVC-889F.JPG

I also use a light spring to keep the shifter over centered in high gear
