New tools!  I visited my Snap-on guy for the first time in a few months.  I bought a 1/4" drive handle and a brake shoe retainer spring socket. 

I received all of my parts back from Lewis Welding.

p.s. I made the cold MIG weld on the fixture.

I filed the weld off of the back side of this part. 

Part of the shift linkage will rub inside this part, so I am going to bond a piece of stainless to each wall.  That way the rubbing will happen on a bare 304 stainless surface rather than a painted surface, which would rub off and eventually rust.  The white pieces shown here are stainless with the protective film still installed.

I also modified this piece.  I filed the factory MIG weld into a radius, and tapped a hole into the bottom.  The factory piece used a snap ring, but I will be using a bolt.

My tapped hole ended up within .010" from the true center, so I'm happy with it.
