Hi Guys

Yes that's what you need, I have an ididit column with auto shifter in my wagon, I had to put a spacer under the top column mount to the dash so that the part of the column that swivels with the shifter about 1/4-3/16" thick would clear the bottom of the instrument pod. second thing is I used the lokar adjustable gearbox linkage to connect the autobox to the column it works but I am not happy with it as the movement is not smooth. so I am now pondering weather to use the lokar cable set up
just the cost that's playing on my mind at the moment.


Cheers Ian:uk:

I have the Lokar cable shift kit with a Ididit column shift column in my 52 Chev pickup. It works OK but it has pretty high effort to shift it. I think the kit with rod and heim ends works just as good at 1/3 the cost.

HI GUys


Tim, I dunno mate, I am just not happy with the lokar rod/heim setup I find it hard work and not positive at all, when you shift it can shift (the lever)straight through a gear. for example There is no way I could shift manually on the strip, if I wanted to shift from 1st to 2nd it would more likely miss 2nd and shift to 3rd that's how notchy the shifter movement is.

Column shift linkage

Has anyone tried the Kugel Komponents Column Shift Linkage? It has a very good reputation with the street rod guys.
