No More Mess. Upgrading the shifter in your T56 transmission and don't like the idea of messy RTV silicone or gasket maker? You'll reduce the chances of having a stuck bolt or and eliminate the possibility of getting silicone into your transmission by buying this gasket set. It's a smart investment to protect your transmission and it makes shifter install easy.
Eliminates Noise & Vibration. If you use silicone to install your shifter, you can get unnecessary noise and vibration. Using a complete gasket set will reduce the amount of vibrations coming through your transmission into your shifter. Plus, it can eliminate the possibility of metal-on-metal contact if you don't get a complete, thick, evenly distributed layer of silicone. And let's face it - who has time for that?
Easier Removal. Using a shifter base and handle gasket is a smart choice when you have to service your transmission, too. Trying to get your shifter off to get into your turret is a headache if it's on there with silicone. With a gasket it's easy to remove and even reuse when re-installing your shifter.
Application. This shifter base & handle gasket are designed for use on the T56 transmission.
