So I got my Muncie linkage mocked up on the tranny for my 66 SS with console. Back in the early 90's my bro-in-law sold my original linkage at a garage sale. I found one on Hemmings back in the 90's. The seller was a nova guy and said this was the right shifter arm. Fast forward to 2017. The shifter had corroded and pitted so I decided to buy a repop. When I got it home and matched it up to the supposed original it was way off in the angle of the throw. So I decided to have my chrome guy replate the original and it came out great. So now I am wondering which one is the correct one. I am attaching a picture. The original has the ball and sits way back farther like at 30 degrees in neutral. The repop is missing the ball and sits higher like at 15 degrees. Does anyone know which is actually the correct one based on the picture?
