930 shifter rod - bearing bracket spacer question.

While installing a new ball socket for my 930 shifter, I found a 1/2" thick spacer ( not a Porsche part ) installed between the L-shaped (bearing bracket) and the tunnel.

If I install the shifter without the 1/2" spacer then the shift rod binds at the L-bracket since the shifter ball socket is too deep in it's cup.

I am wondering if I have the wrong L-bracket (bearing bracket)? Since this part does not have a stamped part number on it I do not know if I have part # 930-424-031-00 or not.

Does anyone have one that they can measure for comparison?

The dimension from the mounting surface on my L-bracket to the centerline of the shifter rod is approximately 40 mm.

My shifter appears to be factory but the shaft has been subsequently welded to the pivot portion of the shifter. The dimension from the pivot to the ball end on my shifter is approximately 80 mm. The previous owner says it's a short shifter but I can't confirm this.

My questions are as follows:

1) Do I have the correct L-bracket for my 87 930?
2) If a spacer is common at this location then what thicknesses are you guys running? I assume this matters since the thickness of this spacer will change the amount of left-right throw of the shifter rod.

Thanks to everyone..
Thank you,

'87 930, 3.3 liter, K27 hybrid, Kokeln IC, Andial, B&B, Borla, 17" Supercups.
