Re: 4 Speed Shifter hump

I got everything to fix my tunnel around the 4 speed shifter (boot, trim ring and the carpet retainer/grommet) and I have a hump on order.

The only way I could figure out to get the boot on the shifter handle was to remove the T. The reverse lock-out cable was cut very close to the stop collar and when I pulled it apart the end of the cable unraveled slightly. Of course now I can't snake it back through the hole in the shifter T.

Is there a better way to get the boot onto the shifter handle without taking it apart?

I've ordered a replacement reverse lock-out cable with a much longer cable!!

Re: 4 Speed Shifter hump

If the boot is NOS or one of the good quality repros, then you can slide it on down to the Tee, then stretch it over one arm of the Tee, then stretch it over the other arm, without tearing it.

But if it is the crappy one (by TWE) that is about as sturdy as a candy bar wrapper, then it will immediately tear if you try do that.

Been there - done that. Man that was a bear to get the used cable back thru the shifter "T"!

Fortunately I succeeded.....

Where are getting your new cable from?

I used this one https://www.ss396.com/el-camino/RST-76D.html to replace the cobbled up hole in my 66 convertible with console I also bought the retainer IT-1311 and lower shifter boot IE-384 They all fit good and worked fine to repair the giant hole that was in my car and not I won't have hot air blowing up from the exhaust while driving.

Ordered the replacement cable from 4 Speed Conversions.

Success - I put the boot in some hot water for a minute and then was able to stretch it over the T and you described.

Which carpet is correct?

Now that I have everything to do my car, bucket seats, 4-speed shifter but no console, I'm looking for correct carpet likely ACC.

As related above, I'm using the recommended hump (pictured below).

I believe from what I have been able to research, With this hump I do not want to use the ACC set that is supposed to be for 4-Speed Bucket Seats (also pictured below). It is my understanding that this is the set that should be used with a console and that the molded area in this set DOES NOT FIT the small hump when no console is used.

So then is the set sold for "Automatic" correct (Also picture below), i.e. there is enough material to fit the small hump?

I also notice that ACC has a third set that is supposed to be for 4 Speed Bench Seat (also pictured below). The pictures I have found of this set looks exactly like the Automatic set.

Help with this is appreciated.

Don

P.S. I'm going to call ACC tomorrow. I sent an Email question asking for pictures and what was different about each set, but I got back a email that said just tell us what you have and we will tell you what you need. My concern with this is I suspect if I say I have 4 speed and bucket seats, that they set they will suggest I buy. And if what I have found in my research, this is not the case with a no console setup.

Re: 4 Speed Shifter hump

The molded shape of all the 64-67 Chevelle carpets was the same. So get the "column shift" version and it will fit.

Just to be sure, your saying the automatic/column shift carpet will fit around the 4 speed hump that I plan to use.

thanks,

Re: 4 Speed Shifter hump

YES. The ACC automatic carpet is what you want, even with the small shifter hump you've shown

(Been there, done that.)
