    I re-measured tonight and got the same measurements, but I did some bad math last night. 13 - 10.5 is 2.5 not 3.5 so I'm at 2 1/2 PTP not 3.5. Does this change anything?

    I did not have to replace the gear shift control, but I replaced the key switch because I wanted a mercmonitor and I think the new key switch was part of the smartcraft cabling or something like that.
