Billet aluminum shift coupler

After chasing a shifter issue for some time (crappy urethane shift coupler), I found a need for a new product. I have CNC machined a billet aluminum shifter coupling to replace the late style coupling. Not just a lathe turned sleeve that will tie the shift rod and hockey stick together, this product allows for variations in angularity between these 2 shafts, just as the late shift coupling does. This is especially important if your transmission is not solid mounted. After spending good money on a Berg or other shifter why put your shift input through a piece of rubber?

You can use your factory cross shaft or you can drill the shift shaft to 13/32 and use the supplied 10 mm cross shaft to restore your shift shaft cross bolt hole to round, after a minimum of 35 years of shifts there is bound to be some wear in your hole...

Real nice. Reasonably priced to boot. Just beware that some noise will transmit through it for the discriminate customer. How snug does that through bolt fit since spreader screw is deleted ? That's my only concern.

Re: Billet aluminum shift coupler

Porter brings up a point.. Any long term results? Also,think one might have to ditch the coupler access plate...Less weight, more bling. looks nice.

Re: Billet aluminum shift coupler

No long term results, I put it in the car and drove it around for a half hour or so. It works nice, feels real positive. It uses the oem cross bolt and grub screw. It has clearance between the shift shaft and the inside of the coupler. You replace that odd washer on the one side with a flat washer. The cross pin then floats, and the shift rod floats inside the coupling slightly.
