Ive been having some real issues with my shift star, so i decided it was time to replace it. I actually found one of the modified star gears on ebay. Apparently the seller doesnt know what it is, because he says it is oem. I emailed the seller asking if it included the dowel, but he said it did not. My question is if the dowel is necessary, and if so could i by chance make one or buy one. If i could get dimensions of one i could easily make one.
