    Wow!.......speaking of straws...............anybody here remember "Chocolate Cow" straws? Just stick the straw in a glass of milk and have a ready to drink chocolate drink! It's "refreshing" attempting to explain to today's youth about things from "back-n-da-day"

    IIRC there is a circular cutout/depression on the bottom of the handle where the shifter threads in. I'd buy a few washers with that OD or slightly smaller and drill them out to 3/8" if necessary to position the handle.

    I should think it will. You may need to add a washer or two under the shift handle to get it clocked in the position you like but not a bad solution.

    You could put a Heli-coil in the knob or a Keensert or the like. Or drill it out and glue in an "all thread" coupler with JB Weld. I've done all three many times. I've made shifter knobs from all sorts of things this way.
