Do you have a correct 4 speed console? Your automatic console has a base that is shaped different than a 4 speed console.

I have a 67 with a console and the shifter is straight, no offset, and works perfectly within the console hole. My son has a 66 with no console, we moved my shifter to his car trying to troubleshoot some other problem and it worked perfectly as well. Both shifters were purchased to fit the transmission without specifying whether the cars had a console. You should not have any problems unless the newer shifter applications have changed.

Yes, everything matters. If you look at an old Hurst catalog they had pages of shifters designed for specific cars, often a car with a consoles used a different shifter than a car without a console.

Did you buy your shifter new or used? If used, did you check it against the online Hurst catalog to make sure it would work?

You should get the shifter handle for the car the trans is going in, good luck.

Steve R

If you have bolt on shifter shafts use the install kit for the 1969 - 72 chevelle 373-7834 but use the 391-7308 stick assembly. Unless you are dealing with someone very knowledgeable with the Hurst line, which even Hurst is not, you can expect problems. I usually stock them. Many people have also been using the hardened tool steel bushings over the powdered metal crap Hurst is now selling.
