Im building a homemade cable shifter. I bought the cable, heims, and spring plunger from McMaster. My question is, on the NLR type shifters, do they have detents for each gear built into shifter or will the handle move freely back and forth when not hooked up to trans? Thanks

If you are a hair off on the detents you’ll end up between gears. Make sure your handle is real light or you’ll end up shifting when you make a hit. For that reason I think if I were to make another one I would have a reverse shift pattern, so forward is drive and back is reverse.
