The part numbers. These are brand spanking new rods from Nissan USA. Don't bother trying to order from TCM/TCEAS. They won't know what you are talking about. They can't even tell me my gearbox model.
The rods. Top is the control rod while bottom is the support rod. The support rod is also longer. The ends that are still wrapped up hold bushes.
Close up of the ends. Top is the control rod. Bottom the support rod.
The other end of the control rod after being unwrapped. This end connects to the striking yoke on the gearbox.
Likewise the support rod. Shadow is not a Super 8 wannabee but yours truly rushing to take a picture late at night.
I believe the control rod is all you are going to need but I decided to also buy the support rod as these are not too expensive at about USD50+ per rod. The support rod bracket has also been ordered and should be here soon.
