(262) 942-8882. I think that number is still good, I talked with him last spring. Hope this helps.

Will do. Just so you know, I sent it through your website. When I Googled the phone number to see if it was still good, I found your website and messaged you that way.

Re: Early T10 shifter

Quick update:

I spent a little time in the shop this weekend working on the Chevelle. Decided to remove the Competion Plus shifter and mess around with the stock shifter because my new console came in on Friday. The tailshaft on my T10 has 8 mounting holes. Stock shifter uses 3. 6 of the mounting holes are a direct bolt-on. I used the 3 holes closest to the firewall. The other 3 holes are directly behind the first 3 about 3/4". I bolted the shifter up and then placed the new tunnel sheet metal piece where it's shaped to it. Perfect fit with no interference. I used the linkage that was already on the transmission. Once adjusted, 1st through 4th was working perfectly. Reverse was a little stubborn, though. The 3rd to 4th gear linkage runs directly along side (in front of) the reverse lever. When shifting to reverse, the reverse linkage makes contact with the 3 to 4 linkage, but only slightly. The current reverse lever is short and looks like a muncie, based on what I have found on the internet. I put on a longer lever so that the linkage mounts a little lower and no longer hits 3 to 4 linkage. Doing so changed the throw ratio a little but it shifts perfectly. I was a little surprised. I bolted on the new console and the only real issue I have is that the shifter sits more to the right, inside the opening, but nothing hits when rowing gears. Reverse comes close to hitting, but does not. I'm going to make a 3/4" spacer to move the shifter over closer to center and also check center of the tailshaft in relation to the car. No telling what the previous owner did. The Lakewood bellhousing was/is hitting the drivers side floor, after all. I think I'm going look for a different 3 to 4 linkage as well in hopes it will move out of the way of the reverse linkage so I can go back to the shorter throw lever. I do have a question though. Can anyone give me the measurement from the top of the console opening to the top of the shifter ball? I've googled it with no success

FYI I was able to sell a 1959 vintage T10 for $1700 on ebay about 4 years ago. The buyer needed it for a period correct 409 Impala restoration.

I am that guy who buys high and sells at a loss. Never had any luck selling. If I could find the right buyer I would sell it and go with a better transmission.
