    After console removal due to heater correct issues my 68 shifter felt weak. So had to fab up support. Started with stainless sheet stock from ace hardware. Using hand punch tool to establish base then fold metal around uprights. When folded around pot metal /assembly felt stronger but increase in width wouldn't allow operation in console. After trimming inch 3/4 I started to drill into legs using pre punch holes 3/32 located and laid out prior to folding/ bending of metal.Luckily 3 out of 4 holes were "on" In am. I will insert screws and nuts to finish. But had to install shifter as is to drive

    The dark shadow on left hand side or gap where metal isn't flush around base had to be trimmed back back to alllow sliding bar for detention lock to operate as well

    The drill I used 5/64 was almost same size as screw so now the screws themself want to thread into diecast as opposed to passing thru. And the shallow slot doesn't help to turn screw in either. But it works as is

    I know this thread is old, but I just ran into the same problem. If anyone has any laying around, I’d be forever grateful.

    Hello ToddsGS,

    I had just come across this post. I too am in need of the Horseshoe Shifter for a 1969 GS Stage1. The shifter snapped on both sides down near the bolt on to bracket.

    Please let me know if you able to help me out.

    Thanks, Chris

    Bob,
    You need a 68 or 69 handle and it is not reproduced and the 70-72 piece is different. You can put one in but you will need to replace everything to the 70-72 style . They are different in appearance. Tony

    FWIW... when you assemble it with those really short #8 flat head screws, put a drop of locktite on them. That'll keep them from coming loose and eating up the THREE threads that holds them in place. ws
