Hurst Short Throw Shifter

Hey guys,

For anyone who has or who has installed a Hurst ST shifter:

When I have the car running in 5th or 6th gear, i get a sound that appears to be coming from the shifter/transmission area that almost sounds like rubbing or virbration.

It only seems to be in those gears and I am not sure if this is normal or if i installed things wrong (not sure if that is possible as it all seems to be working fine and had no real issues with the install (I thought putting the boot back on was pretty easy).

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks.

Its a 2pc shifter, that makes it have a small vibration in the shifter, try holding the point where they mate ( the 2 bolts) and if the sound goes a way your good, you can add some sound dentener there too.

When I am driving, and while it is in either 5th or 6th gear I can push on the shifter to the right slightly and the sounds seems to reduce quite a bit...

I was thinking of using some kind of sound reducing material at the mating point and see what that does (cant hurt I guess).

Hopefully that works.

It will help some but not remove it all.
