Sandrail build . Need help with shifter and shift box setup
Posted by: Slickgib ()
Date: December 02, 2017 02:59PM

So. I am currently building an old choir corvair sandrail. I’m pretty much complete but I want to dial in my shifter and shift box. I want a super easy smooth shifting experience . Also I don’t want it in the middle of the two seats . I have a 4sp manual transAxels. Any help or tutorials would be great, pictures especially

This would be a 60's build... early 60's.... most all were "Tube framed" by the mid 60's "tube" was everything from Mild steel to Black iron pipe to Exhaust tubing [ racers ]

In the nineties I made the billet T5 shifter work for Vairy V8.

Same shift pattern as you...only the u-bend around the motor different.

Knuckle in picture two came out of a T5 Worlds Class five speed.

Shifter was cataloged as a Ford Mustang...the short flanged unit.
