heres the deal, the 69 I bought in 4000 pieces is now down to about 225 parts. When I installed the motor/trans yesterday, I was installing the shifter/plate assembly and it will not line up with the hole in the floor.It sets back about three inches to far.Upon further inspection, the speedo gear is on the drivers side which means the tail shaft housing is different (believe me, it took a lot of looking at pix and assembly manuals, etc to figure this simple one out)I went to another friends house and looked at his 4 speed with the speedo dump on the passenger side, measured, etc. and the "W" shaped bolt holes measure the same from the rear. Is this piece from a corvette and thus not placing the shifter in the right spot, or have I not got it bolted up inproperly? What a pain in the ford!! HELP!!
By the way, the shifter, the plate, all are from a 69 z-28.
