Hello all. I am in the process of assembling the gearbox and am now fiddling with the gear shifting mechanism.
The manual says that this tool should be used, but I do not have it, of course.
Please advise how to do the process without such a tool? How did you "calibrated" the gear?
Thanks in advance!

FWIW, when I rebuilt my plunger transmission (3x) I put back in the bits I had taken out, and fortunately I didn't need to mess with grinding the shift plate at all. I believe the door tool isn't a requirement - if gears aren't engaging or slipping out of gear, one can figure out which way to grind - and those guts come out easily enough even with the transmission in the frame... Sorry I can't provide more detail.

You can always sacrifice a door to make one, too.
