    Shift knob and boot part number?

    Anyone know the part number? I can't seem to get the knob and boot off of the Mallett shifter to try out my latest version of the modified stocker, even though I've had it off half a dozen times or so now.

    So, I'm thinking it will get damaged soon when I force it off. Would like to have a replacement ready for when it happens.

    Bill

    Hmmmm...$100+?

    Well, might have to simply come up with an aftermarket knob to use with the OEM boot for that much

    StealthV engineering short throw shifter now comes with cool billet knob? carbon knob? ideas? Just trying to give Rick more to do!

    WildWhl, did you ever get your knob off?

    I tried looking at my shifter this evening to check out the play it has, and the damn thing won't come off. I really tried too.

    First time trying to take the knob off the Mallett Shifter.

    [QUOTE=rabid]WildWhl, did you ever get your knob off?QUOTE]

    Damn, Rabid, a bit personal don't you think?

    The answer is no, I cannot seem to get this thing off. I even created a makeshift lever to pry with and had help. It is friggin' on there and I don't understand why. I have had it off a couple of times since the original install of the Mallett shifter, removal and back to stock shifter, repeat. I can't figure out how it can be on there so tough...and have applied what I thought would have been enough force to break it off! I'm trying to be careful and not let anything slip when it comes apart thereby doing damage to any other areas of the car (i.e. dash).

    This weekend I will give it one last, serious, balls to the wall try. If it doesn't come off, I'm shipping the modified shifter to StealthV for him to try out. Besides, it wouldn't hurt to have a second opinion of the mods.

    For those of you patiently waiting, the time it takes to modify the stock shifter is less than one hour. The addition of the urethane bushings that lasstss has planned should make a nearly perfect, IMHO, unit. There are limits to what can be achieved with a remote shifter design such as that on the V...but I've done my best with my limited engineering knowledge and fabrication experience.

    Also, I happened to see a B&M commercial for their line of shifters over the weekend on TV. I noticed that most of them appear to have some sort of extra mass machined into or attached to the stalk. I would guess this would be a noise reduction measure, but can't say for sure. I recall reading somewhere that someone had attached or suggested attaching something used in outboard boats...don't recall the term (zinc weight?)...but it was basically a weight attached around the shift stalk to tame down noise. Those with the Mallett shifter could consider trying this option as well.

    Man, I feel like a bit of a slacker not getting to these half finished mods, but I have to be honest. We're experiencing over 40% sales growth for the second year running at our shop - and that compounded growth has me scrambling for the moment acquiring additional equipment and personnel. Duty calls, I suppose, but I sure do miss the fun time with the cars at the moment...
