Shifter Cable Angle

Once the shifter is mounted, figure out what angle the shifter cable is coming down from and drill a hole through the floor. Make sure to leave enough clearance to get the bigger parts of the housing through. Seal the hole to keep dirt and fumes out of the cab. Where the cable end mounts to the shifter, you should be able to see the neutral-safety and reverse-light switches that are tripped when in the proper shift position. If your vehicle is getting signals from switches mounted directly to the tranny housing, you may disregard these two switches.
