Hi All

New member today, my name is Mike. Working on my 67 ragtop and wishing i was driving it. Anyone know why the shifter I have mounted to my Saginaw 4 speed uses the holes that should be for cross member mount. I can't figure how to mount it and the new hurst linkage has the same mount that uses the only 2 holes that i think should be to mount it in the car. Any help is appreciated!

Re: Hi All

I have had a Hurst shifter in both a saginaw and muncie trans and they both mounted to the side of the trans with the cross-member mounting to the bottom.

Re: Hi All

Hey, Mike, could be design time of the shifters
I've had both types/brands mounting either by a plate under trans mount and the other mounted on the side with a plate and an U-clamp around tailshaft housing.

Re: Hi All

Hey Mike - Yeah sounds like the previous owner had a few too many good ideas.

Open your copy of the 1967 AIM and look at how the cross member and the factory shifter options were supposed to be mounted to the sub-frame and the shifter to the transmission body. Not sure what shifter - factory - aftermarket you currently have.

I would start by trying to get the cross member then the current shifter installed correctly, then once at that square one, swap out your shifter for the new Hurst.

Hurst aftermarket shifters had particular kits for particular trans/engine/years so make sure all of your stuff is of the same year/options before tearing into it to save some long periods of transmission depression.

And Welcome Mike. I'll also add the question to the above... are you able to shift the vehicle with it mounted to the crossmember? If I remember right 67 and 68 Hurst aftermarket used U clamps on the transmission tail housing. Many folks made or bought specially made mounting plates to avoid the U clamps. Maybe you have a hybrid of one of those?

Re: Hi All

Just info on my set up. 67 SS/RS BBC M21 with Hurst shifter

Shifter mounts to a bracket on the driver side of the trans.

This bracket (think "L" shape) mounts in between the trans tail shaft and trans mount (two bolts). A "U" clamp mounts around the tail housing to give the bracket stability.

Please don't ask how I had to modify this set up when I added a Gear Vendors overdrive...

hope it sort of helps

Re: Hi All

Thanks for the tips. I have the l shaped bracket and it sandwiches between the trans and the crossmember mount with the ring around the tail.
