Shifter Ball on Factory Hurst

I have searched but didn't find a definitive answer to my question.

Are there any aftermarket knobs that will fit the Hurst factory stick without modifying the shifter itself. I know it is not threaded and I am no desire to thread it.

Looking for a simple pull the old one off and push the new one on.

MGW is the only company I know of that sells a knob that fits the OEM stick. Here's a link to their page.

So is the OEM factory (non Hurst) stick shaft the same size as the Hurst short throw shifter stick shaft?

I'm guessing you're talking about the GM Hurst shifter, correct? If so then it's a yes/no. The shafts are the same diameter, but not the same length. The GM Hurst is a 22% reduction in throw to the OEM shifter.

Reduced throw doesn't always mean shorter stick though.

True. As what a short shifter is really doing is reducing the angle that the shifter shaft travels through during its stroke between gears. This is usually coupled with a shorter shaft - but now always. So yes, that's my bad for making a generalization.

Well I just mentioned it because the 4th Gen Hurst used the same stick as the regular shifter.

Yes- the area where the knob attaches to the stick are exactly the same dimensions for both stock and factory GM/Hurst.

I am not crazy about either one of the MGW shifter knobs that they have on their website. I am finding out that due to the fact that the Hurst short throw shifter shaft is not threaded you cant just swap out the shifter knob. I have a call into Barton Industries to check out their adapter set up.

SO does this mean my factory Hurst is only shorter in height not in throw.

No. The factory Hurst is a 22% reduction in throw

This is correct. Only throw is reduced (22%) and the height of the shifter remains identical to stock.

The ZL1 knob should fit, right?

Yes, as it is also a push on knob.

After much consideration I finally ordered a Hurst billet 2 shifter yesterday to replace my factory Hurst ST shifter. I just dont really like the size and shape of the factory knob I find the knob is just too small for large hands. I am hopeing the ball knob will have a better feel.
