To REALLY throw you kids for a loop:

My Hurst Short Throw Shifter doesn't use the upper bushing.

Just uses the pins and lower bushing....

As for the pivot pins, I can't really comment on how to remove them since mine were already loose and fairly worn. Pushing them back in with some thread locker has been doing the trick for now, but I ordered the bushing kit from the dealership the other day and it to help tighten things up a bit more. If you run into other issues, let me know.
I'm thinking perhaps the best bet to replace those pins is to pull that floor panel up so you have more room to maneuver around? Either way it feels much better than it did.

How do you like that shifter? I've been thinking about getting one. I believe core shifters sells the kit now.





This is random but where can one find the shift **** for the stick? Mine is all loose and falls off with ease. There isn't a set screw for it at all.

Curious, I am driving a 1994 f250 5 speed. Having to float a bit and regular shift. I can get first from a stop about 50 % of the time. I sometimes can touch the spinning plate if I push to hard into 3rd. I am starting in 2nd most of the time. I am thinking the slave cylinder at the firewall, but I love this kit. Is there a marking that can tell me the transmission model number? 4x2 300 6cyl. 176000 and going strong.

Pulling the floor should give you better access. My truck is bare metal right now on the floor so it makes things pretty easy to see.

If you get the Core shifter, I wouldn't mind hearing a review on it. It looks good, but having someone that bought it comment on it would be better.

To fix my shift **** from popping off, I just put some super glue inside and stuck it back on. Hasn't been a problem since, but eventually I want a more permanent solution. For my birthday I got a tap set, so I may thread the top of the shaft and buy a shift **** from MGW, Hurst or someone like that.

Since you have a 5 speed, your only options are the M5OD like we have in this thread or a ZF5, assuming your transmission is a stock Ford one. If you can crawl underneith and snap a quick photo we can tell you what transmission. Your door sticker should explain what transmission you have if I remember correctly. Another option would be to google those two transmissions you should be able to tell after looking under your truck.

Just so everyone knows, apparently the dealership can only order the bushings in. The pins and cover are no longer sold by Ford. At least here in Canada they aren't.
