    I wouldn't hesitate to modify the pin - but I would talk with Baker first as well. They have probably seen this issue before.

    Another thought - you could chuck it up and turn down the whole pin, but you really only need to relieve the area that contacts the stop plate. You would remove a lot less metal that way. Pin would be stronger.

    Yeah I was wondering what would be better, I can just chuck it up in a 4 jaw and indicate the pin and turn the whole thing down. It would be easier to just stick it in a mill and take a few passes off the backside of it lol

    Spoke to Steve at Baker, he said he's never heard of anyone having trouble with this and never heard of the arm being off, I sent him an email with the pics I posted here as well. I think it's just the way they made their gear?

    I'm interested to see how this works out. Always something to learn about these machines.

    The one I installed on a 53 FL yesterday is not like that, straight up kicker arm.

    Does that trans have the steel stop piece attached with the 2 countersunk screws at the bottom of the trans where the pin on the kicker gear lands?

    That makes no sense then lol. I guess I'm just going to leave it alone and have it at an angle... Baker didn't seem very worried about it and I havn't heard anything back.

    May try and call them again and see if I can get another set of kicker gears to compare them too.

    My experience with Baker has been the same, "never had or heard of a problem will check into it",never hear back from then again. Way over priced stuff but for the most part good stuff

    Yeah it's kinda disappointing honestly, but they make the only hydraulic clutch conversion for a 4 speed that I could find, other than Speed Dealer Customs and its ugly as homemade sin lol

    Won't matter if you get another set they are all the same.
    You can grind off a bit of the steel stop.
    that will make it go straight up again will take some time fitting and grinding
    That's the best way I think to go and won't weaken the gear.
    And if you go too far on the stop you can replace it or weld it up again and start over.
