It's the most reasonably priced gate shift type unit available. I've used one for years and couldn't be more pleased!

A worth while improvement. I am very happy with the way my car shifts. If you don't have the FACTORY short shift, that should also be on your list.

The addition of the Seine gate shifter plus a FACTORY short shifter
has been the most impressive improvement I have ever made
to the driveability of my 911. PERIOD!
I also added the Coupler Whisperer shift coupler bushings which unfortunately are no longer available.

I have 2 Wevo kits and 1 Seine/short shift kit.

I like them all. It is hard to say which is better because each box is different but the Seine kit is worth the money and effort.

I'm going to try a JWest shifter on my current project because the look will fit better with the '68 and its 915 retrofit gearbox.

...I sound like some sort of shifter slut.

A great shift kit for the money. Used in my 82 SC.

It is recommended to cut your rubber shift boot to allow the side bolt to stick out. My boot has held up well without being cut and I like the stealth mode.

Seine V JWest

I bought a used 915 shifter with a properly welded (tabs) Seine kit installed 5 years ago. Installed it, adjusted it, absolutely love it.

3 years ago I purchased the JWest shifter, it's still on the shelf.

I've been restoring the car a bit at a time. The JWest piece is a low priority simply because the Seine works so well.

I'm really interested in the difference between the two. Here in April when my mechanic gets home from the middle East we have plans to go through the entire suspension and I'll install it then.

I'll decide then which to keep.

Was reading on reviews in Pelican, seems like most mentioned that the pivot pin with the Seine kit is to large and has to be machined down or Oem hole in shifter needs to be drilled out. Has Seine corrected
Thanks

Not a problem, I think perhaps you misunderstood what they were referring to.
The fact is that the shift housing itself has to have the oval opening on the right side enlarged to accommodate the longer pivot pin that comes with the kit. The install instructions will make it all clear to you. Don't sweat it, just buy one and do it. LOL

there is some work involved. the shifter housing "cutout" has to be elongated. I used a barrel shaped grinding stone that I inserted into a drill press. the housing is soft being aluminum so removing material is not too tough to do. I suppose a drimmel with a stone or one of those barrel type sander attachments would serve your purpose.

if you don't weld use the hose clamp to secure the gate selector to test it all after reinstall, then take it to a welding shop with the hose clamp still attached and tell them you want it there... if I recall one member simply JB welded it to the shifter shaft

Don't forget to replace the stock oval bushings in the shift coupler under the plate in the rear of the center tunnel with tight round bushings. This takes a lot of the slop out of the system, and bushings are a lot cheaper than fancy couplers.

The most clever way to do this that I have seen is to find, in a good hardware store, some brass bushings which are a tight fit on the stock coupler cross pin. Then you drill out the oval stock bushings (your old ones will do if they are still in one piece) so these bushings can be pressed in. Voila.

Had one in my 73 and one in my 82 and love the direct engagement. No misgivings.

Have a Rennshift in the 914 and it too is a quality unit. Seine doesn’t make one for 914-6s with a side shift.
