Often overlooked, and not included the kit shown above, are the special very thick, hardened steel washers that go on the bolts to compress the rubber grommets. I have often seen plain hardware washers there, which allow far too much movement. The thick ones lock them down.
Often people replace the Ford shifter with an aftermarket one, then extol the benefits of the new shifter. I went the other way. For a couple hundred thousand miles, I had a Hurst Competition Plus™. Then I acquired a Ford shifter, and rebuilt it to like-new. It was much smoother and tighter than the Hurst.
Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.
