Thanks for the pics. A couple questions...

I can only remember having one Hurst shifter that was mounted on this 45 degree angle. I swear the other ones I have, mount straight up and down. Just like the original ones do... or I think do.

What kind of input shaft is this ? sure looks different than the ones I have.

This is the only Toploader and shifter I've owned and have experience with, so sorry I can't give advice on mounting orientation. I just used the standard Comp Plus shifter for '65, and it came with the black adapter plate. The only unusual thing about my shifter is the small adapter where the shift handle mounts. I got this from David Kee so I could use a factory shift handle.

Regarding the input shaft, mine probably looks different because I cut off the pilot sleeve on the bearing retainer...had to modify it for my hydraulic throw-out bearing.

Ahh, that makes sense now.. If this tranny is for a 363 with Weber 48's. I gotta see a couple pics of this beast ! I bet this one is a blast to drive...
Thanks again, Chris

Chris, Not sure if this helps as it only shows the back part of the tranny, but here is a Toploader with original early shifter. I thought I had some others pics showing the full linkage, but could not find them. What specifically are you looking for?

Thanks for the pic. Ideally a picture of the trans out of the car with a pics of the shift rods and their routing and whether the levers are up or down. Also, a pic of the bottom of the shifter.

I would like pics of hurst and a stock shifter. I have an entire bin full of shifters and rods. Probably 25 shifters, I have collected over the years. I'm going to mock a few complete set-ups on a toploader and make them complete..

Chris, I understand now what you are looking for. Here is a toploader with original linkage

Google Image Result for http://www.napaliprop.com/1965-toploader-falconx.jpg

I'll also check my old computer to see what pics I have there.

Thanks for the effort Jay but this is for a falcon which has a different tailshaft and mounting possition, and different rods. )-: Sure didn't remember some of the levers facing up though.

Also, the mounting plates can be confusing. I have a good variety of these as well.

1-2 and 3-4 are all ways lever up. (3-4 is closest to bell housing)

Reverse tab depends on where you want reverse.
Tab up puts reverse next to 1.
Tab down puts reverse next to 2. (Mustang position)

Chris, Thanks for the education. I have always thought the Mustang and Falcon shared the same power train including shifter.
