When my project began I wanted the stock look with very tough parts.I have installed a 1969 munci M22 in my 1969 Camaro 396/375 car and i am having problems putting the factory hurst shifter in.I think the problem began when we noticed that the tail shaft had been changed and a hd 400 output shaft had beed added so the tail shaft is now the same as a 1970 Camaro.I have found a 1970 Hurst mounting bracket and altered it to work with my 1969 Hurst shifter but now the shifter is to tall in the tunnell and to far to the left.Does anyone know of a mounting bracket that will take care of the problems.By the way a 1969 Big or small block mounting bracket will not work I have them both.

I also have a SS 396/375 but with a M21. I
did not use a mounting bracket on my Hurst
Comp II shifter, I just bolted it to the
side of the transmission. It all lined up fine. Without the bracket, it will move the shifter more to the right, isn't that what you need? Maybe you can try it without the bracket and see where it aligns in the tunnel?

The larger tail shaft has not been added, all M22s had the large tailshaft. You don't happen to have a large tail shaft extention housing lying around do you? I have a M22 with a busted housing and haven't been able to find one at a reasonable price.

Later Muncie tailshaft housings have 5 bracket mounting holes, earlier versions have 3. The BB bracket requires the 5 hole housing.

I may be wrong but I don't believe all M22's had the larger tailshaft, just 70 and up.

M-22's used in 70 Chevelles only had the larger tailshaft commonly referred to as the "turbo 400 tailshaft" Beginning in '71 all muncies got the "turbo 400 tailshaft" along with the fine spline input shaft.

Wasn't a M22 with the small shaft a M21? I thought that was the only difference between them. They both have the 2.20 first gear. Wasn't the M22 first built for the L-88 Vette? Please correct me if I'm wrong, which I probably am.

The M-22 and M-21 have the same gear ratios. The M-22 gears are more straight cut and noisier, hence the term "Rockcrusher" Most ones I've owned sound similiar to gear drive especially in 1st gear. The 1st documented M-22 was used in a 396/425 hp '65 vette. It is believed to be the only known '65 car that got the M-22.
