Here is something I'm pretty curious about. Is it possible for the center "pivot" are of the stock shifter being wore out. I'm not familiar with the internals of the shifter at the pivot point so I was curious.

Hey Alan. Yes a lot of the stock shifters I have seen have major wear on the pivot ball in the upper part of the shifter. If they are even there. Most rot away and end up in the transmission. Along with worn pivot pins and tore shifter boots causing leaks and debris inside the transmission. On our kit you reuse that boot so it needs to be in good condition. Hope this helps.

So what have you guys been doing with ones you are using for cores that are not acceptable to rebuild? I haven't looked at mine but I wouldn't mind making sure mine is "refreshed" and ready for a GNT short throw when I buy it.

Well to be honest. We have gotten 2 cores. And one was toast. Only because of the rotten boot. May have to get creative and find a similar replacement. Thats if we reproduce any more. The cost is going up after these. Due to machining costs. Sorry. I believe there are only 7 left of these. Right now.

Anyone still using a stock shifter should get one IMHO. I'll be getting a second before they are gone. How many bent kits do you have left Tye?

I'm interested. I have a mookeh that sounds like it's about to fall apart. How much for an assembled shifter?

Do you have one? How long have you been using it? Does it rattle or make noise at all?

Yes, I bought and installed one a few months ago on my project car and put it to the test on a few spirited drives before parking it and starting a restoration. Just haven't had time to take it out and put it in my finished driver that has a mookee in it I don't like as much. Actually plan on buying another GNT, so they both have one

Just installed a new GNT bent shifter and it operates flawlessly!  Drop-in version was super-easy to install (except for taking the entire center console and radio out).  This piece of equipment is heavy-duty and high quality.  And, the guys at GNT are extremely helpful.  Thank you, Scotty for introducing me to GNT.
