is there a screw on shift knob adapter for the push on shifter?

i found out that the factory option hurst shifter in my 2011 2SS is going to have the push on knob.

is there an adapter that will let me use a screw on knob on the push on stick?

thanks...

Wait. So they are installing the Hurst but with a push on shifter knob upper stick? I would just buy a different upper stick from Hurst so you can use whatever knob you want.

You can always check on www.flameball.com
they have a nice selection of knobs and they have a place for you to tell them what type of car you have so they make the right knob.

I believe there would be. My Hurst shifter kit came with two shifters. One to retain the stock knob and one that was more retro, chrome with a white ball.

Both were available on the Hurst web site. If they used the same mounting on your OEM 2011 Hurst shifter (which I assume they would) then the chrome one would fit.

The Hurst aftermarket shifter is a two-piece design (that can be separated) and can accept just about any Hurst upper stick.

The factory GM/Hurst shifter is a one piece isolated design (much like the current OEM stick) and cannot be separated. You CANNOT bolt a Hurst aftermarket upper stick to it.

i put this in my other thread about the factory hurst shifter, but ill put it here too.

the shift knob im getting isnt drilled in any way, i will have to put my own hole in it.

would there be a way to cut a hole that would fit on the factory hurst shifter?

thanks for all your help

Not knowing the size, shape, material of your knob... it's hard to say if just drilling a hole (Ø14mm BTW) into your knob and using epoxy would work. My educated guess would be - no. Overtime, it probably would not hold-up. The stock knob has molded in keys (front, back and top) to prevent rotation with a locking feature at the bottom.

Your best bet would be to take out the shifter and have the top portion threaded. And then drill and tap your knob.

The other option would be to use a set screw type collar (if your knob has that provision) knob.

i agree with above statement, would not hold up.

in the past, I bought a generic momo knob and it used a super screw to secure itself, and it didnt hold up. Found an adapter to make it into a screw.

I bought a pistolgrip handle from Barton that came with a screw on adapterfor the stock shaft. It also works on the mgw shifter I have now. Cool combo between the two.
