Mount the Muncie on a nice walnut board and tell your frieds you won it at a car show

Thanks Mikey. I'm looking forward to diving in. Once again your fine work is an inspiration for this old sailor.

Maybe we should set up a conference call or Netmeeting while we do this?

Thanks for the info Mike.

How do I remove the pin (or cylinder) that holds everything in place? I am starting to tear it apart and am taking step by step photos to post here..

Notice in the last pic Mike has posted you can see the end of the pin. Use a large drift and angle it so as to catch the space between the housing and the pin. Don't be afraid to hit it. If you want, send me your address and I will send you a replacement pin. I make them from oil hardened tool steel with a hardness of 54 to 56 RC. No charge. Tom.

Flat blade worked (took about 30 seconds). No hammer necessary, just a little pressure and it pushed out. The rest pulled out by hand. Thanks for the suggestions! I am going to wait to post all my photos when I am done taking it apart so they are all in order so it is easy to read.

Darren sent me a PM and asked how to take this part of the shifter apart. I will answere here so "Buckeye Boy" Sam don't ax the same question later, pay attention Sam...



Drive out both roll pins ( to be replaced latter )



Then twist the shifter and pull out the large diameter spring.



Pull this gizmo stright out





Once that flat "T" is out, again twist the lever some and pull the small spring out, and watch for the washer. This washer is on the inside.



Good idea to take some notes and/or alot of pictures for reassembly. Pay attention to the position the shifter lever in relation to that "U" shaped spring housing... it can go together backwords...I did it... even with the pictures.

Mike

Darren - you're not getting off that easy . That dude's Hurst SCP is going on top of a F*#d Top Loader. I need to see one with a Chevy application. (good link)

Mike - pay attention to what ?
