How is the automatic cable routed? Since the cable comes out of the front of the shifter it has to double back on itself to get to the rear. I thought about mounting the shifter backwards, maybe (joking, of course, sometimes it is hard to tell on here!).
Well, what do you know? I finally figured something out on my own! Yes, it is the dog bone, and there is a small spring in the mechanism that loves to jump out at you. Now all I have to do is figure out how to attach the cable. I would guess it is not that hard.
