Wanted: T-10 4spd shifter
« on: January 10, 2007, 11:25:54 AM »
I want to find a 4spd shifter for my T-10.  The one for the 79 TA console, need the shifter, rods, and brackets.  I do have a knob :lol:   I have an auto in my car now but have not hooked up the linkage or put the driveshaft in yet,  maybe if I find a good deal on the right shifter I will just take the auto out and put the 4 spd in. :lol:

thanks

The shifter install kit for a Hurst Competition shifter will work for the factory Hurst shifter. I bought one and used it to install my factory shifter on my new T-10.

It comes with rods, bolts, brackets, arms, etc. Everything but the shifter and knob!

Grab a bare shifter off of eBay for $20 and grab the install kit for $85 and you're good to go!

I think I have the bare shifter,  I don't have the plate that goes form the shifter to the trans or the rest.  I will take pics of what I have and maybe you guys can tell me what will work.  I don't have alot of experience with the individual parts. :D

You'll need a 4-speed console too if you are converting from auto to manual trans.  :wink:

Not neccessarily.  I've seen a very few TAs wtih a 4 speed and no console -- in fact, I think I've seen one on this board within the past week IIRC.  Just about everyone did have the console, thought.

My TA was an original 4spd car,  still have the orginal trans.  I shoved the 400 and auto trans from the 77 TA I ripped apart.  I haven't hooked up the auto shifter yet.  Lately I just want to put the 4spd back in.  So I have the the original console and the auto console out of the 77.

Neither shifter is an original. original shifters have a slide in round stick with hurst stamped in it. I have several extras if you need one.
