SHORT SHIFTER

Recommended Posts

Looking into fitting a short shifter into a type 9 box, can a non rose joint version be purchased? all I have seen are the rose joint.

I don't know of anyone producing a non rose jointed type lever. There was someone producing adapters to take the std. escort 4 speed lever and fit to a T9 box. If this adapter was extended together with the lever end linkage to reposition the pivot point, it should be possible. Maybe the std. sierra lever mount isn't as adaptable? Mine came with a rose jointed type that buzzed annoyingly so i've tightened up the joint to hopefully reduce the 'buzz' but haven't had the change to try it yet as the car is still not ready for the road!

Doesn't this kit do the same job by shifting the pivot point without a rose joint?

That would appear to do the trick - and its cheap!
