HEADS-UP V-6 owner: This job took me 2-3 hours. At step #10/26 "Pull firmly down on the shifter assembly to remove from the car" I could not do this. On step #11 (on the next page) a belated cryptic message was the clue:

"NOTE: V6 owners can be permantly remove the centering springs or they can reposition them and reuse them depending upon the drivers (sp) preference."
Which sounded like something I also read in the Hurst instruction manual.

What was left unsaid was that you must remove the springs and to get to it you must remove the dust boot - easy off but not so easy to put back on because aligning of the boot's rubber spikes into the small holes of the carrier was VERY hard. I had to remove these springs before the old shifter could be removed. Then the new shifter was a VERY tight fit and required that I use longer bolts than stock to position screw and guide the new shifter assembly into the housing. Next, whether to keep the springs or not. I choose to keep them but did not like the fact that the sharp threads of the new shaft were cutting into the springs. The stock shifter did not have threads in contact with the springs. I experimented with a plastic sleeve but discarded it as it seemed to impede full articulation of the shifter. I fully expect that the springs will get diced up with use. I like the shifter and it seem to work fine after install- just more hassle than expected.

Steve I sent you a PM.

I sincerely apologize and Steve is correct about the directions for the V6. I do need to add in there that the centering springs need to be removed prior to removing the factory shifter from the car. When doing the directions we based everything off of the
SS cars and forgot to put that in there.

Stevo, thanks for the warning. I received my shifter but wasn't planning to do the install until next week. Thanks again for the heads up.

I dont have a V6 car at my disposal to get a good look at whats going on. My plans are to make a threaded sleeve that will be going below the lock nut. Im talking with another guy that has a V6 and going back and forth with him to get more info. I will keep you posted as to whats going on. I would suggest leaving the springs off for now.
Could you send me a PM when your done installing. Im curious what the shifter will feel like with out the springs.

Yeah !

Finished installing on the V6 today ! Took a little longer than the V8 install previous due to the centering springs. Had my mechanic buddy with me and says the way the springs rest against the threaded body is fine and will not wear in motion. Tried it both with and without the centering spring and I prefered it with. (not much difference)
Drove around for 45min before I started to snow in here again !
Time to put my car away till another day.

just wanted to give a follow up to my vibration. I went back underneath and the boot ripped a little. After hrs of fighting with the boot i finally got in on. You must get this boot on. There is very little vibration. I will get it to no vibration when I get my sound deadener pad in. Buy this product cause its awesome. Dave from Barton was a big help.
