Offset stick bracket for custom work

Offset stick bracket for custom work

In many custom situations a stick of right shape and size is not available - necessitating an extension bracket like you see here:

  • Offsets stick 2.2" upward and 1.3" rearward
    • * as bracket lengthens lever, shifter travel at knob will increase...
  • Made of 5/16" thick mild steel, zinc-plated
    • Lower holes are clearanced for 3/8" bolts
    • Upper holes have 3/8"-24 thread to mount stick
    • Bolts for upper holes included (reuse existing bolts in lower holes)
  • Smooth on both sides (no stick serrations)
    • Mate smooth side of Hurst stick to bracket face
    • Mate bracket to smooth side of stub where possible - usually requires flipping stub 180 deg in housing to get smooth faces of stick and stub on same side
      • Warning - some stubs do NOT have a smooth side
    • Apply RTV silicone sealant to mating faces before final assembly, to enhance connections, and torque 3/8" bolts to 30 ft-lbs
  • NOTE: dust boot for base must remain in use - you probably need to install the bracket, install the dust boot, and then install the stick
A bracket like this should only be considered as a last resort. Focus should first be on selecting the best shifter base fulcrum height as that is a better way to control knob height. The objective is always to choose a stick and stub that put the knob on a horizontal line toward right from bottom of steering wheel (in neutral)
