Did they show up?
sweet. looks like a stock 4 speed with a twist. good job.
Right now it's just mocked-up, not completly mounted. It should raise up about an inch. I might need to modify the opening to fit some more.
Need a clutch pedal to complete the look
wow I thought you had a 465 under that shifter!
I was like why is the shifter so straight like that... lol
Would a Lokar be able to handle off road vibration? Not pop out of gear?
I'm looking at an Art Carr shifter as well.
I'm also going with a Lokar floor mounted E-brake.
Im still a noob What is a Lokar?
Brand name for a company that sell stuff for vintage vehicles. The floor shifter on this thread is from Lokar.
Its a brand name of a setup that allows you to do away with your column shifter and linkage that goes with it. I got one to...
I'm not worried about it poping out. It's mounted to the trans directly like in the above pic.
I've been pretty tough on my blazer since I put mine in and have yet to have any probs with it poping in and out
I want to go full manual reverse valve body and get a lokar 23inch shifter but I didnt find one at summit for the reverse pattern. Thats a killer looking shifter though.
I have the 23" nostalgia shifter. it would work with a reverse pattern. you would just have to push the button to up shift and it would ratchet down shift.
never had a problem with vibrations or popping out of gear. I have had mine 7 years now and am hard on the truck, including rowing the shifter a lot when wheeling.
the chrome is starting to pit, but I don't do the kind of upkeep that most hot-rod guys do.
Is the removeable tranny hump stock?
Did you change out the column as well or just remove the shifter?
How much $$ does it cost?
Which shifter is that, the 16" one?
OK thanks guys for the info. Where do I get myself one I hate me column shifter and always wanted a auto floor shifter. How hard is it to install?
my 83 blazer has a stock removable hump. it makes tranny stuff real easy! i hear this is only in the blazers tho.
If that's the case about no problems popping out, then maybe I'll get a Lokar instead of an Art Carr.
I really like the 'stock look' of the Lokar !
This is an excellent reference thread !
My tranny hump is removeable, it even had the outline of the original shifter hole. So I cut along the outline for the stock look. I paid around 160 from summit and it's a 16" (maybe 18" I'll check later) shifter. Also, I changed out my colomn for a manual one.
