Default shift **** pitch

I'm trying to find a shift **** for my 86. I had to take out the old shifter, turns out the shifter itself was broken that's why my shifter would fall to the left when put into first. I put one in from an 84. (only one i could find in a yard locally) I'm having trouble finding a reliable source on thread pitch. I have a M10x1.25 **** from my sentra that wont seem to fit whereas my sources say that the mazda and nissans are both M10x1.25. The hole is too small in the nissan **** I'm thinking it's a M12 but idk if it's x1.5 or x1.25 pitch

sounds right as big as the shift **** is. I couldnt take the one off my old shifter since someone glued it on. I'll be driving without a **** til my one gets here from ebay. now to play the waiting game

If you just want a shift **** to get by and not spend too much money, Level Zero Motorsports sells round delrin shift **** with different thread at about $20 + shipping.

Level Zero Motorsports

Unless you have a specific style that you found on eBay, otherwise I'd save money and get a really good one. Especially if down the road you're getting short shifter, you will likely want a weighted shift **** for better throw feel.

atm i dont have the money. I found a guy on rx7club that makes acrylic ones for about $65 shipped and he can engrave anything in them. I want one of those but i lost his email and cant find his old post. The acrylics wont get hot like metal ones do. I settled for a brushed alum. one on ebay for $15 to get me by til i've got cash for the one I want. Driving with my hand in the shift boot is pretty wierd til I get a **** lol

Delrin doesn't get hot, so it's similar to the acrylic ones.

Just go with what you can find at the lowest price, and then eventually get a really good one that you will never change.

I never had a problem with my aluminum voodoo **** getting hot, except when parked on hot days. I'd keep a sock in the car that I'd slip over the shifter, that kept it from getting too hot.
