Re: Hurst Comp. Shifter Rebuild
I'm no expert, but I've worked on some Hurst shifters. I just "freshened" my Comp. + shifter on my 69 M20. You can get the bushings and "s" clip looking things at regular auto parts stores (I used Knecht's). I've seen the bushings in "nylon" and metal, never rubber though.
I believe I used metal and cleaned everything on the shifter and linkage. Then I greased the shifter "guts" and reassembled everything. There is a "spring metal" cover over the guts of the shifter which can be removed for cleaning.
I know this isn't a real rebuild as it doesn't address the actual bushings of the shifter arm mechanisms. Hurst will rebuild them, but it's pretty $pendy. I believe more than half of a new shifter.
Aligning the shifter and arms when reinstalling on the tranny is very important. A little off on the neutral positions can cause problems, even locking up tranny so car won't move. It's not that difficult though. There is a hole in the shifter for a 1/4 inch rod ( I used a drill bit) which lines up the neutral points on all three shifter arms.
PS I just reread your post and realize you didn't say if it was a Hurst shifter. That's what 69's came with, so I hope this info is relevant.
