My Muncie shifter was not shifting the way I wanted it to and after reading some posts in this forum I decided to switch to a hurst comp plus. I got the whole package so I am assuming it will have everything I need. I am planning on doing this myself. What should I expect? I have a bench seat with a M20 tranny. I think the hurst shifter will come with instrutions, but any other advice? Do I have to drop the tranny? Is most of the work done from inside the car or under? Anything on this forum that would step me through it? Pictures?

Most all the work will be done under the car. Except for the handle and boot cover. You will wonder what took you so long to change it out.
Adjusment with all holes lined up in the tower slide a 1/4 rod thru it.
Atatch all linkage. Making sure everything is hooked up. Slide handle from side to side to make sure it goes into reverse return to neutral and take
3rd and 4th rod loose and let it out a couple threads where there is a bump from side to side. Forward motion When and if you power shift ?
It wont hang up. If you are not going to power it? Dont worry about it

You might need to lower the tail of the transmission in order to give you enough room to bolt on the new shifter. The Muncie shifter bolts to the transmission cross member. The Hurst shifter bolts to the transmission. To lower the tail of the transmission, jack up the transmission, pull the transmission cross member out and then let the jack down. Make sure you get the right linkage kit. They are year specific.
