    3sp floorshift

    Hello,One cold day recently I wanted to take my Hawk out and went to shift on column and remembered how the greased linkage will congeal and I gave up on wrestling it.I'm looking for a floor shifter, a friend of mine has an older Hurst in his Hawk done by previous owner. Any ideas where I could look? I'm also looking for an overdrive transmission preferably the T85 . Thanks Mike Earle

    If you can wait until April when we get back home, I have the entire transmission and floor shifter which I took out of my Sky Hawk...including bell housing, fly wheel, entire clutch/pressure plate, release bearing, and OD unit.

    Yes, the older Hursts are the absolute best. Swap meets and eBay.

    Yes, the currently available Hurst Indy is OK and is available everywhere.

    Yes, the T85 is the strongest of the 3-speeds. When buying a 3-speed, be aware there are short tailshaft fixed yoke pickup T89/ '56 Packard GH versions and the long tailshaft slip yoke versions.

    I ran one of those in a GT for 100,000 miles and it was the cat's meow. I was a fool to swap it out for a T86, but then went back to a T85 later. Bought it NOS from Lester Schmidt, back in the day.

    Does it include the slip yoke? That is a very hard to find part, perhaps even harder than the transmission itself (Lester said). So hopefully yours has the yoke with it.

    The entire package was taken out of my 56 Sky Hawk, from the crankshaft back...including the fly wheel, and slip yoke...

    The '56 Sky Hawk is a short tailshaft fixed yoke square bolt pattern T86; correct? What year is the Jersey Hawk?

    This shifter is at $70 right now with 22 hours left. Its a steal at this price. Probably a good deal at twice the price. It has all the linkage with it.

    That's the Indy; a decent shifter, but not one to fight over. However, as Sal says, it's a deal - they're a lot more retail.

    I have an INDY in my Hawk. It is not great, but it does its job. I paid a lot more than $70 for mine new about 4 years ago.
