Step 8: Place the stock shifter assembly on a workbench. Remove the two flanged metal sleeves from the front rubber bushing on the shifter arm. And transfer onto new shifter assembly.
Step 9: Remove the two plastic bushings from the bottom of the shifter arm and transfer onto the new assembly. I would not recommend using tools to get these bushings out for the risk of damaging the bushing.
Step 10: Now your new Hurst shifter assembly is ready to be installed. Slip the shifter through the tunnel from inside the car. First insert the 10mm bolt removed in step 6 into the front side mount of the new shifter. Hand tighten to hold it in place
Step 11: Attach the rear bracket to the new Hurst bushing. Make sure the new bushing seats in the bracket. Then tighten bolts.
Step 12: Re-attach shifter bottom to linkage rod making sure the bushings are still in place. The 13mm nut should be on the passenger side of the car and linkage inserted on the other. Now tighten the 10mm at front of the shifter assembly.
Step 13: Carefully lower vehicle. From inside the vehicle attach the Hurst upper stick to the lower stick with two mounting washers and two 7/32 hex screws then tighten.
Step 14: Reinstall the rubber boot removed in step 3. Move through the gears with shifter to check for proper engagement and operation. Make sure all gears engage and move side to side freely in neutral.
Step 15: Install shifter boot grommet and slide into shift boot.
Step 16: Attach the knob nut onto Hurst stick and thread down as far as possibly without forcing it. After screw on the hurst knob all the way down until it contacts the knob nut, then back it off until the orientation of the shift pattern/logo is correct. Then with one hand holding the knob in the correct orientation, use the other hand to tighten the knob nut up against the knob
