do you like round nob shifter or t handle setup on your shifter?
why dont you make it a poll!
i choose round feels better for me and allows me to shift quicker.
i saw in another post you were looking for one with a button
these are for a ford i think but im sure they make them for what you need
I like shift-balls better than T-handles too. You can shift with just an open palm instead of actually gripping the shifter. I got so good with shifting while driving my 5-speed equipped high-school vehicle that I could shift gears as smoothly and just as quick (maybe even a little quicker) than any automatic equipped vehicle.
Round, for sure.
Round... my sm465 transmission is a true truck transmission and it shifts like one too so I don't have any need for a racecar shifter handle in it since fast shifting and sm465 dont really belong in the same sentence anyway.
Plus I like the look of the origional factory shifter knob. Were always doing stuff to our rigs to make them different, but its neat to have a vintage factory old shifter knob on the end of your stick, since the rocks and dirt don't care either way what your shifting with, and especially now-a-day when you can go to autozone and buy a light-up, alien head shaped, plastic chrome, type R shifter knob with a built in turbo sound whistle and air freshener.
Cue ball, both of them. Oh, its HURST Promatic-2, TH350.
i like the t handle as you arlready saw makes me know i got a good grip to grab them gears let me find some more pics of mine
here old style new then i got a new one for the nitrous too
I had this on my K5 when it had the 465
The button can be used for many things. I was thinking of hooking it up so it could hold my brakes on a hill.
It was comfortable. I had a custom leather wrap made for it so it wasn't so cold in the winter. I may sell it since I have no use for now.
that is the one that i bought for nitrous
I picked up my shifters fronm WFO Concepts-
i like might have to get some they make just twin stick ones?
The shifters themselves are from ORD, the triple stick kit. The knobs are from WFO Concepts. You can get the knobs in pretty much whatever pattern you want.
i like round as you can drive and drink.... coffee or soda that is ....bottom of soda can is beveled and the stock ball fits in there... even in wawa cups......Disclaimer:yes beer cans have that dimple too however i do not recommend that!!!!!
The left most T-case shifter's for the doubler ain't it?
yes it is the range box (203)
then right two are twin stick for the 205
personaly I like the aluminum polished piston or the beer tap.
Hmm. Going with a 203 doubler, twin-stick 205, and 465 tranny would leave me for four shifters out of the floor? I LIKE! Nobody would want to drive my rig!
What I'd probably do as far knobs go would be to top each lever with 8-balls.
