View Full Version : Does anyone happen to know the specific thread of the shift rod on a 1950 Champion?

I am buying a custom made 8 ball shifter for my 1950 Champion 3 on the tree, and the guy needs to know the exact threadxdiameter to properly drill the threads of the insert into the ball to fit right. Anyone know what the thread is with certainty?

Bob, rather than taking someone else's word for it, why not try one or two common nuts on your existing shift lever and see which one screws right on? Then tell the fabricator whatever thread size you found that worked. :cool: BP

I tried that last night before posting the question on SDC. The course nut only went on a couple of threads and stopped, so I assumed it was an odd thread. I just went back out to the car, and I realized I was using a stop nut, which explains the nut, well, stopping! I did find the correct thread. Thanks
