Re: O/T How to bend shifter?

You can probably use 3 sockets and a vice.
Mount two sockets on one side of the jaws in the vice. You can put duck tape around them to keep them in place. Sockets can be about 5" apart. Open jaws wide enoug to place shifter and a 3rd socket in, with the 3rd socket positioned in the middle of the previous two, but on the other jaw (and other side of the shifter). Slowly close the jaws and it should bend. See my attached crude diagram.
