Hi, I got an second gen M20 (1' longer, fine spline input, 400 style output and bolts on shift levers) in my 67 chevelle, now I must order a shifter and mounting bracket.
I'm pretty sure of the hurst shifter number 3917308 but not sure about the mounting bracket number, I'm planning to order mounting #3737834 wich fit M22 or post 70 M20.
I would to be sure the shifter will bolt right on the mounting bracket and will have the right angle to match the hump hole.
Does anybody already experienced this combo.
Any input are welcome.

Laurent.

Laurent,

You are right on target. I have the same combo of trans, shifter, & install kit in my 67, although my M20 is a 1973. With the part numbers you listed, your shifter will fit in the stock location with no problems. :thumbsup:

Hurst used to include the mounting bracket in the 3737834 install kit, but I ordered mine 10 years ago. Regardless, the Hurst mounting bracket is the same for the early & later Chevelles.

Additionally, you may want look into a new yoke for the transmission output. Your 67's driveshaft came with the stock smaller U joints, but the stock T-400 yoke is set up for U Joints which have larger caps. One option would be to get an adapter U-Joint, however, I read here on Team Chevelle that they aren't very strong. What I did was call Denny's Driveshafts in New York State. They have a T-400 yoke that has the smaller cap sizes that match our combo perfectly. The cost was about $100 US. A mere 65 Euros! ;) You should explain to them on the phone what you are trying to accomplish. They will set you up with the right yoke.

Edit. Here is their link

Oh yeah... just an FYI, if you haven't done so already, you will need to shorten your driveshaft 1".

Pete, thank you for advices.
Everything is already under the body, I changed yoke and hybrid 1310/1350 u joint to fit 400 yoke and factory shortened drive shaft.
The only missing part for now is the shifter, car was originaly L6 with 3 speed on the three that I converted to 454 and M20 during the frame off resto wich is not finish yet.
