    Why do you think you can't use it?

    Take a look at a Hurst Competition Plus assembly especially the shifter shaft lower part. Other forums led me to believe the rounded lower shaft isn't the one I should use , its like a bolt on at the lower portion, and this one will allow more clearance.

    That was true years ago before they were bought out, it was very reasonable, I never paid over $35.

    I don't see any difference in the two shifters except for the rounded corner on the Mr. G shifter.

    From what I can gather, that little difference can matter a whole lot regarding the seat position. I donít know. ?

    I assume you bought a Super T-10 as they were the only T-10s offered with with ITM shifters, you will also need a TH-400 style yoke. How many rings does it have on input.

    Ok, So I need a 57 clutch linkage to clear the oil filter on my 1975 350 engine but I need to either make a bushing for my 1955 5/8 shaft for better fitment on a 1957 3/4 z-bar or change the pivot. Has anyone here made a bushing or changed the pivot?
