    Flossy Red Shorty

    I installed my new Flossy Red Shorty shift knob today, but the engraving doesn't line-up the way I want it once tightened all the way down. I imagine I need some type of locknut on the shifter. What size nut? I've tried all the ones I have in the garage, but would really like to know the size before heading to the hardware store.

    Take the knob with you and grab one that is the same diameter?

    Measure the diameter of the threaded shaft?

    Take it off and if you tightened it down all the way, see how far off it is and rotate it that much clockwise and re thread. You'll just have to keep adjusting it to get it right
    I have a perrin and learned this trick
