He is wrong.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

You can, but then the lever will flop around on you. I believe the factory bent shifter has a pin or something in it so the bend will always face forward.

Correct. The same is true for Cub Cadets with a bent shift lever.

The tranny is the same but I believe the ring gear has to be swapped to the other side if using in a f cub. Otherwise you have three reverse gears and one forward.
