Yeah, saw that, most places are right at $50, just been hoping for a deal.94_240sx wrote:
$51.25It's a pretty good price for the brand new one.
Will do, will probably be after tax return, need to make sure I pay off the credit card first.krash wrote:

I bought one of those during my swap, one of the bolt holes didn't line up, and one of the guys at work said his rattled like crazy when he had one. So I opted to get the other cheap ebay short shifter.biggie wrote: May try the cheap ebay B&M knockoff for the shifter.
Hmm, might still try it. Usually some rattling can be helped with changing to the OEM white nylon bushing. It is cheap though, so won't kill me if it doesn't work out.Harman850T5 wrote:

Swap is coming along nicely though.
Just dropping the steering column to do the pedals. Just waiting on a friend to bring a couple tools to try to finish up. Hopefully this weekend.krash wrote:biggie just giving you a heads up on the pedal installation if you haven't gotten there yet. If you can, pull the dashboard out. it only takes an hour and it makes a world of a difference when drilling the holes. I pulled the dash and then that a/c duct, and it was so much easier to do everything. You might even have enough room if you just take off that a/c duct.
i used one for my swap, same flaw that the knockoffs have one hole doesnt line up, i had a greddy shifter housing that i used instead of the flawed one. other than that the shifter is great.biggie wrote:May try the cheap ebay B&M knockoff for the shifter.
Apparently they make a tool with a slide hammer than can get it out and you can use a 1/2 inch extension, stick it in and pry it out as well.matty boi wrote:as for the auto pilot bushing adapter thing in the flywheel i used a pipe wrench to twist it off while a friend held the crank from turning with a ratchet. took less than five mins just a tip for any future guys or girls looking to swap their tranny.
No, got it out last weekend. Just waiting on a friend to have some time to help/bring some tools I don't have.krash wrote:thanks for the help, I didn't even think about tilting the engine. Went right in after some persuasion Are you stuck on the AT slug?
I was really thinking of picking up one of these shift knobs after trying many different ones. I used the OEM stock 240 knob, two or three MOMO knobs, a S15 knob, then a Nismo chrome aluminum one...which I loved...until the summer. It would get so hot I would have to cover it with a sock or towel. Then I came across one called The Hammer, it's a weighted stock looking leather shift knob. I always had read about the great feel of a weighted shift knob with a short shifter...so I tried it....and it's the best hands down (to me). And it's less then $20. It's actually a Mitsubishi stock knob. Here is a link:http://www.nissanparts.cc/catalog/?section=1046biggie wrote:Anyone seen a good price on a Rubber Nismo GT shift knob?
