shift rail saddle installation
« on: September 08, 2014, 09:13:44 PM »
I purchased a new shift rail saddle and have a question regarding installation.. .....does the tab face towards the front or the back of the extension housing when installed on the shift rail?

I don't know, but I did come across that site and was wondering if that was the part you needed.
Glad you found it.
Are there any pictures of that part in the manual?

Hi Russ,

No photos in the manual. I think the original piece didn't have a tab on it.  This one, I think, is for the Merkur XR4Ti, but it fits perfectly.

1st photo is of new part

2nd photo is of original part 
(Notice original part does not have the tab. They are no longer available, or very difficult to find)

I have always installed them with the tab forwards, had no issues
