Shifter seal?

I think I have a missing part but don't know what it is.


The shifter for my Dana 20 has the grommet thingie in the carpet where shifter comes through the carpet but below that it is just the hole in the floor.
When cruising down the road cold air just blows in through the hole pretty bad.


Isn't there supposed to be some kind of seal or something there to keep the air out? Right now I have rags stuffed around it to keep the cold out......Looks like crap but works for now

It's missing a shifter booth and rubber plate with opening for the stick.

The booth is a square kind of booth and put into the floor opening upside down.

The seal on top is a flat piece , you could cut one out of a thin piece of flexible rubber plate.

Thanks for the quick reply!


I have the rubber piece on the floor as shown in pic but under that is just a hole in the sheet metal, you can see the ground through the rubber slot.


I figured there HAS to be something under the floor to seal the hole but can't find anything on sites for sale or anywhere else. I can't even find a picture so I know what I am dealing with.


This is what I have now ...

The upper piece you have is still looking good so keep that and put a shifter booth upside down in between the body and the upper piece you have!

Lining up the holes or finding the existing holes could be difficult with everything together at once!
