Success!!! Got it in tonight. Took the shifter out, took out one of the bushings, rotated it 180 degrees. Pin would not go through the bushings easy so did some quick light burnishing until the pin went through like butter. Put the shifter back in the car, rocked the fork while sliding the pin in and whaa laaa! The tougest part after that was getting the freakking hex bolts in and the boot back on! This job was hard to do if you're on your back with the car only inches above you and you have big hands like me!

Took Lucy out for a little test drive too. Shifter feels pretty good, a little poppy when shifting into the next gear and reverse was tough the first time. Now I've got to update my signature!

We have just installed one of the bushing kits,it saved us from replacing the shifter with another brand.The shifter works like it should have from Hurst.Thanks for coming up with a solution.

I assume this fix does not apply to the factory Hurst shifter?

I've had my bushings in now for about a month and it's great! Still nice and firm with minimal play! I must say though, the only drawback to this fix is a slightly increased vibration during hard acceleration.

I have the stock Hurst white ball on mine and the vibration seems to be amplified through the ball. I removed the ball and applied pipe thread tape to the threads and used a rubber washer under the ball between the nut. This seems to have reduced some of the vibration through the ball. Another fix for vibration is to lower the windows a little! lol! Seriously, when I noticed the higher level of vibration I had the windows closed (cold evening). As soon as I cracked the windows I could hardly hear the vibration with the wind noise in the cabin! It's like noise cancelling headphones, works like a champ!
