    Mark,

    Was that what you were looking for? Is that the same as the reverse lock-out?? If so, I do have all of that still attached to the shifter...

    Who makes the hump on post #3? One of my cars is going to need a new floor and the hump is pretty much toast, altho it looks VERY similar to that. All the others I have seen look nothing like that.

    Here's a pic of an original one from a 67 car with console. And a shot of the part # of the hump.

    Sorry, not much left of it in the first picture. Gotta love Iowa winters.....

    I recommend that you guys find a friend to weld the rod-attachment subassembly around the margins where it meets the pedal. The two spot welds from the factory are a joke. I've killed two of these over the years.

    Mark- every one of the lower boot rings I have seen were either black painted or black phosphate coated.

    Important to mention that the ring is underneath the outer flap, so it is not visible. The picture would be correct.

    Does anyone have an pic of a 70-72 floor pan with the correct bracket for the D56 "short non-shift floor console" / storage console for bucket seat cars without the full length console? A drawing of the bracket is on page 1-12.1 of the 70 assembly manual. I am trying to locate the correct position of the bracket and was hoping to see an original so I can at least get close. Thanks.

    I just wanted to add a few things here, being ate up with four-gears for a long time.

    First, the B-O-P bell housings without the pivot ball stud are mostly from V-6 Vega body cars. They used a cable style clutch, usually with fork came out the opposite side.

    Second, in my experience the clutch pedal assemblies are '64-'65 '66-'67 and '68-'72. In most instances the '64-'67 will inter change. *(On pretty much all A-body stuff) There are some slight changes in the pedal shapes and bends.

    Third, the clutch cross shaft/bell crank/z-bar is '64-'65 '66-'67 amd '68-'72. The main difference is a bend to clear the change to a collapse-able sterring column in '67. The BOP z-bars (OEM ones) are multiple link deals to allow for the motor to torque over, where the Chevy one don't. In the cars I have converted, I used Chevy Z-bars, because, well, the were already in the reproduction market.

    The question I have, any of you '64-'67 guys have header issues? I have ran into this with a '65 442 and a '67 442. All the rest of the A-bodies and X-bodies I have converted went ok.

    Hey there gd2227 and all of our Buick friends,

    I need some good pictures of the floor area with the carpet removed -- I'm converting a '69 Skylark from an automatic transmission shifted on the column to a four-on-the-floor. This one picture you have of the hump alone is helpful -- anyone have some good pictures of the whole floor with the hump from various angles?

    I'm installing a Muncie M-21 and a Buick consolette.
    Thanks! Take care.

    Any thoughts on the retaining ring?? There are enough 68 -72 4 speeds out there to repro, I would think, let alone the conversions. Thanks

    Attached is a link for Parts place and the repop clutch fork. It says it's a direct replacement for specific years to include 71. Is this an exact reproduction? Does it have the hole for the spring? I also included the picture.

    If not

    Think GM corporate. I have a 68 4-4-2 floor shift, the boot was trash. After years of searching for a good used I found a nice one, paid $150. Within a week I discovered that it was being repro'd for $50. It is identical to the one pictured. it was used on Olds bench/bucket console free cars. If you think about the GM philosophy, it makes sense to share low production parts. I just discovered that Firebird hinges fit my Cutlass. Anyway, try Fusick Auto for the boot.
