68 DT1 shift shaft was created by tvrc18

Need a shift shaft that has splines on each end like the early DT1's. Mine is bent and the one Speed and Sport sent me does not have the splines on both sides.

The shift shaft you have received from S & S is the superceded part , fitted to DT2 & 3 .
The part you want , still turns up on Ebay occasionally   214-18125-00  .
The part you received will work , but if you want it in original condition Ebay is your friend .
Well , until you find out what they sell for .  LOL

Does it just sit flush with the outside of the seal on the right side then?

Can you make an alloy plug to block it off. Think DT2's have a small hump there so possibly 'that' DT2 shaft in a "68 will sit out in the seal ok--i hope.
Don't bin your old one as could be straightened easy enough especially if the splines are serviceable.

I believe the plain  end probably sits flush or even slightly proud of the right side seal .

This is a '71 RT1B-360 that was "restored" by someone else. He used a shaft for the '72-'73' DT/RT. It works.

The longer '68-'71 shaft is harder to find. Used ones usually have damaged/worn splines on the end for the shift lever..

The shaft with splines on both ends sure makes it much easier to adjust the shift mechanism because you can put the shifter on the clutch side and watch things as you shift, with the shifter on the other side sure is hard with the engine in the frame to shift and see what is happening. I just want it to look correct also with the rubber plug on the right side covering the shaft.
