  • Early (drivers side) D20 shifter + Th400?

    Anyone running a Th400 and using the stock half moon style drivers side D20 shifter, as found on the 63-65 FSJs?

    I tore my auto D20 down to swap the shift housing from the manual D20 (so I could use the early shifter) and I've been looking at the shift linkage. It bolts to the tranny (T90) in a couple of spots, one of the brackets is made to fit the form of the tranny case, and the shifter will end up around the front of the Th400's pan (the widest part after the bell). The pan is WAY wider then the T90.

    So it's going to be a lot of work to make it work. I'm just wondering if anyone else has done this.

    Are you sure you want to go with that style? They didn't have thread locker back in the day but when I picked up my '65 J200 it had one of those shifters and every point of attachment to the tranny was loose.

      That's how my linkage is. Plenty of slop. It shouldn't be to hard to get rid if it though. A little bushing here and there. Hopefully.

      I've got both cases apart, now I just need to swap shift rails and housings, and put the auto case back together.
