Default Re: ZF320 Detent Pin Question

So last night I had a couple friends over and we were looking at this and talking it through.

One of my friends suggested using a clamp and a socket to hold the R spring in to test resistance. We tested the R pin ramp in several directions and found that when the ramp is facing forward or up it exhibits the behavior I was experiencing. (1-2 being 100% unavailable and R would stick)

I have no idea how the pin managed to rotate in the process, but either it did or I got confused and installed it pointing up or something.

We also tested the pin at a 45* angle facing down and forward. When shifting into R, the pin righted itself so clearly my pin was WAY off.
