    Hurst Comp+ Linkage Adjustment

    Roger - Looks like I do have the shift trunions installed correctly. Wish I had installed this when Mark was still in business. Thanks again!

    Hurst Comp+ Linkage Adjustment

    Thanks, Brian. Hadn't thought of reaching out to Hurst so appreciate the idea. Does seem if that reverse leg kicked out more it would solve both issues. No damage to the box it came in and doesn't appear to be bent. Thanks again! Roger - Great idea. I'll double-check the install manual and see if I have the 1/2 and Reverse trunnion swapped. Thanks! Thanks, Ridge. I tried that and it seems like it is putting stress on the arm and might bind. I double-checked in the install instructions from Hurst and Mark at TL Heaven and all three rod buttons come in from the outside. Attached is a pic from Mark's CD showing a big block setup with a Hurst Comp+ shifter. Appreciate the help.
  5. Looking for a little guidance from someone who has likely experienced this same issue with their shifter install. I've researched a lot of the old threads on different forums and have yet to come up with a complete answer. Installing a Hurst Comp+ shifter on a 69 big block car and have verified that I have the correct installation kit, shift rods, tailshaft, tranny mount, etc. I believe I have it aligned pretty well and can remove/insert the ¼” guide pin fairly easily. I need to push up on the soft metal cover just past the levers to get it all the way through, but it does seem to shift pretty well. I rebuilt the tranny with Mark Hammons kit back in the day and carefully followed his instructions on the CD to install the shifter. My concern is that I seem to get slight interference with the ½ shift rod and the reverse rod. When in first the 1/2 rod makes slight contact with the reverse rod just behind the trunnion. Enough so that you can’t even slide a piece of paper between the levers. (PIC 3) When in reverse the rod end just barely makes contact with the ½ shift lever. Enough so that it pushes on the ½ shift lever and forces it back a 1/4 to half inch. (PIC 4) I've read in other threads that people simply trim down the reverse rod end which would take care of that issue, but want to make sure that's the correct fix before I start cutting. It almost seems like the reverse rod button should be flipped to the inside of the shift lever which would fix both issues, but goes against the instructions and doesn't seem to be an option. Has anyone else experienced this? I've completely removed it and re-installed it twice with the same results. Only thing I can think of is that either the shift rods are bent slightly wrong or I need to play with the trunnion position while in neutral before installing the rods. I have not adjusted the stops as many have said that on toploaders they are not particularly necessary, but even that would not help the interference when shifting in to revers. Thanks in advance for any help.
  6. Thank you very much for digging those out and I am interested in getting more info. The one panel is missing a tab, but I might be able to graft one on from another set that I have. Can you please confirm the part numbers? Looking for the ones ending in CW which it looks like yours might be. 69 and 70 panels are slightly different where it meets up with the quarter window. I will PM you with my email address and we can take it from there.
  7. Still looking for a pair of restorable panels. Thanks!
  8. Looking for a pair of original, restorable 69 interior trim panels. 70's are slightly different where they fit around the quarter window. Any color is fine. Part # C9ZB-6331486-CW

    seat belt buckles

    Thank you, Doug. Much appreciated!

    seat belt buckles

    Hard to tell from your last pic, but do you think the retractor mechanism will interfere with pushing the seat back all the way? Looking at using seat track extensions and not sure which three point system will work best with them. Appreciate the write-up.

    1969 lower dash clips

    Thank you all for the help. On to the next puzzle.
  15. Hi all, Trying to piece together a complete dash for a 69 project and need some help identifying some of the clips. Above the glove box and to the right there are two white plastic clips about an inch apart. Can someone please let me know what these are used for and a possible source to replace them if needed? I am restoring the dash now and they are very brittle. This particular dash likely came out of a Cougar and was not certain if they are specific to that line of car as all the Mustang specific images I can find show these two square holes as empty. Thanks in advance.
