    Posted: 26-November-2009 at 3:26PM
I need some help locating a C6 shift lever, the one that goes into the trans, controls the valve body. I need one for a "Floorshift". The one I have is no good, the hole is to small, and from a Mustang. I cannot enlarge the hole because it is hardened.
I saw a link on one of these forums, to a website that sold these specifically, and for the life of me cannot find it! Does anybody know of this website? or have a good lever to sell? It's all I need to finish my console conversion.
Thanks, Andy

These guys sell them.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#89C6. C6 bracket and shift lever kit. Cost $26.00. The small hole in this shift lever can be drilled out to 17/32 of an inch to accept the grommet for stock shift linkage.

GT Man,
I have that piece, and installed it, all fits well, except I think it's too short. The ratio from park to low is not right. i.e. from park, moving to low, it's in low and the shift indicator only reached D (drive). Will try on Monday to purchase a factory piece. Not sure how you folks make it work.
Thanks...

The TCI piece is MUCH longer than the OEM piece. I had to use the 2nd hole in I believe.
