    Looks like a good idea I just don't know about using the radiator hose clamps on it...I think if I wanted to fix something this route I would have at least used a band clamp or something....

    a hose clamp is technically a band clamp. and they're not there for anything but making sure the roll pins stay in place. mine doesn't have a clamp on it, just the roll pins.

    I'm curious about fixing the wobbly weener at the end. It's labeled "snout" in the diagram. Just weld that up too?

    If you're using a stick welder, 7018 Rod would be my preference.

    How many folks have attempted this? I got mine out of the truck, soaked it in solvent overnight, and hit it with the torque this morning. The foul smelling smoke rolling out of the shifter smells like burnt rubber to me. There is not an internal rubber bushing i 2020-08-11 12.50.39.jpg 2020-08-11 12.50.43.jpg s there?
