I milled and sleeved the hurst knob, put in a front set screw to work on my B & M, worked great. Why mod the stalk ?
My post was unclear, you absolutely need to replace the POS stock shifter in this car. That stock thing is like rowing in a bucket of Jell-O.PISNUOFF said:Mostly to get rid of the stock nylon pivot ball and housing. This shifter shortens the throw and replaces the nylon pivot ball and nylon housing with a spherical bushing that is really smooth when it rotates. This shifter also allows you the flexibility of swapping the top half of the stalk from stock to the chrome Hurst that comes in the kit or a taller one that can be purchased from Hurst. An additional benefit of the two piece stalk is the rubber isolation pieces that can be installed between the pieces to stop the noise and vibration from being transmitted into the cabin. The b&m reuses the stock nylon bushings in the base. Most of these are worn out and cracking. Let me know if you want a set that I've designed to fit tight and take up all of the slop at that joint.
