    Does anyone know the GM part number for the NP205 shifter mounting bolt? It's the bolt that the shifter pivots on, mine goes into the NP205 to TH350 adapter plate. My local dealership couldn't find any such thing... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    thanks,
    Kevin

    I second all the above info, including the part number and watching people pull stuff out of their butts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I think it is thier iventory control...a lot of hardware stores end up writing off a lot of inventory as a bad debt because so many people put a "few" extra bolts in the bag....it really is a shame, but what can you expect from Boulder, eh, Kevin? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    That bolt - is it the same for all 205s or what? He said he has a 350/205. I have a 465/205. Will the bolt be the same?

    If I remember previous posts correctly, there are two different bolts, more than likely dependent on year.

    14009313 is listed in my '85/86 parts manual, so if there are any differences, an earlier adapter is more than likely going to be different, and not, say, an '87 or newer.

    If that part number works for you, great, but if you want to "keep your gm vehicle all gm" you are out of luck with the zerk fitting apparently. However, the parts manual is nice enough to give the specs on it: 1/4"-28x1/2" straight.

    Might want to do a search for posts on that bolt, as I'm fairly sure there are two different thread patterns.

    Yes, the bolt is the same and will work with all of the 205-equipped vehicles.

    BTW, there are 2 different bolts available. This part number listed above is the more desired one since it has the hole for the zerk fitting. The other bolt is just that...no zerk fitting as some shifters had the zerk on the pivot point on the shifter itself.

    Get this greasable bolt and be done with it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yup, probably had something to do with groovy trustafarian driving daddy's landcruiser thinking a few bolts should be free... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif ... not that I'm bitter or anything /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Sometimes they are over helpful at that store but I've gotten quite used to it, now I feel neglected when I go to other hardware stores where they don't hold your hand and find excatly what you need for you /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Unfortunately, they DIDN'T have a bolt with a shoulder that fits right -- it's rattling like crazy now. I went ahead and ordered #14009313 from GMPartsDirect.com -- my local "stealership" wanted 2x as much $$ (yes, just another benefit of living in the Republic of Boulder /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif )...

    The junkyard said my adapter is from a '74, the shifter "should" be the same vintage... I'll let everyone know if it works...

    cheers!

    The 465/205 I bought originally was from a 1972 truck and it had a muchs smalle bolt hole in the adapter, I easily could've drilled and tapped it bigger, but I am cheap and a tap that big is not, so I swapped in another adapter I had laying around...

    Yea, Kevin, I got my bolt from gmpartsdirect too...if fact that is were I get most of my stuff, after I get the dealer to cough up the PN I need /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Do yourself a favor and just order it from the dealer or get it from someone on here. I looked and looked and looked for a bolt that would work and found nothing. The threads are odd and the shoulder is of an odd diameter. I tried drilling out the shifters to fit a bolt that I could have MADE work but that just tore up my $20 bit. I tried going under size and putting a sleeve over the shoulder of the bolt but that didn't work either. I did a twin stick on the 205 and had a machine shop use the original bolt to make the new one from. They charged me $25 and included 2 grease ports for each shifter and the zirk. Pics are in the link below.
