Super wagoneer shifter knob

Can anyone advise if the thread pitch was any different on the automatic shifter stalk on the Super Wagoneers vs. the later AMC automatic shifter stalks. The reason I ask is that my shifter knob off of my 69 AMX ( which looks the same as the Kaiser knobs) will not screw onto my Super Wagoneer shifter stalk. Also, did the Super Wagoneer shifter stalk have a detent or spring action ( by pressing down the black inner knob ) to it to disengage the shifter from the park position?

Any info will be appreciated.

Kenall,

Thanks for the reply but I'm still not sure why my shifter stalk doesn't have any spring tension at the top of the shaft where the threads end. Shouldn't there be some type of spring load that you have to push down on to remove the gear shifter from park? Do I have the right shifter assembly. I'm no longer sure.

kenall,

Yes, it appears to be a solid stock shifter bar, what does that mean? I can take some pics for you. Please send me an email to amcsignguy@netzero.com and I'll reply back with pics.

Thanks, Scott

This is what mine looks like. Straight bar. The pin or retention spring in at the bottom in the console housing. Meaning you need to kinda push down and to the left to engage into the shift track. This was from a 1414x



Can take a pic of the mechanics if you want later. B

Did looking at my '71 yesterday get you thinking about this? As you know mine is a push button in the middle of the chromed plastic knob.

Here are some close ups of my Center Console shifter and the spring that holds it in place or from shifting by it's self.

Spring clips from inside to hole in side

It's the same shifter assembly (knob, mechanicals, everything) as the mid 60's Rambler "Flash-O-Matic".

Guys,

Thanks for all of the posts and the great info that was passed along. It looks like mine is correct and shifts as it should. My only remaining question is about the shifter knob. Is the Rambler knob 1/2 threads vs. 3/8 like the AMC? As I stated in an earlier post I can't get my AMX shifter knob to screw onto the Super Wagoneer shaft. The Super Wagoneer's threads appear much larger.

well my 'button' shift console(350 Supers) has 7/16 20 threads. my 'tilt' shift console (327 Supers) has 9/16 18 threads. (not too sure here but the threads at NC)

on 'tilt' shifters you pull the lever towards you to unlock.

Not sure if it means anything but my buddy had a '68 Barracuda in 1982 and the console and shifter looked very close to those in the pic. I could be wrong but I'd go so far to say they were the same.
