    home made Slingshot tube shifter

    came up my own version of a tube type shifter out of scrap i had lying about the garage.

    used a section of 80's mustang column to provide the outer and inner parts

    used the double d section as well as it matching outer section


    on the inner section i welded a small section of square bar. this will be the reverse lock out


    i cut a corresponding slot in the outer tube for the square bar to slide in to


    welded on an end plate that mounts a spring loaded lever


    the lever stops the shifter pulling into reverse


    slotted the end to fit a ball joint. welded it to the column bracket on the top of the axle case


    using tube to connect shifter to bracket on the box with ball joints at either end


    the cockpit end will have a shift knob fitted


    I was thinking of mounting the neutral switch on the side with a hole in the outer sleeve, the inner will have a dimple when the shifter is in the neutral position

    still not completely finished but it seems to work OK. does require both hands to select reverse but i can live with that
