    Anyone know how to put this piece back together. Two springs inside and a washer any pics on how it goes back together would be great

  2. Is It a 3 speed or 4 speed shifter, in the picture it looks like a 4 speed shifter , there is some difference between the two. Since this is your first one I suggest you find someone who has some shifters and then you can see how to put it back together. What your showing in the picture is not all of the parts and to try and explain how to put it together on Here would be a pain in the butt, so I would see if I could find someone that has a shifter you can look at to see how to put it back together. It pretty easy just take your time, also make sure you have all the parts. Here is a picture of all the parts for a 4 speed shifter. 4 Speed Shifter Breakdown.jpg

    If it doesn't have the parts shown in 38 2 DR Sedan's photo you are missing most of the shifter.
    Your photo shows an early handle. Not a later bolt on unit. It could be a Competition Plus ( 4 speed ) or a Syncro Lock ( 3 Speed ). The handles were the same.

    I have built a few Comp plus's over the years, and I haven't seen this piece. that and the early style stick was why I asked if it was a syncro-loc. and yes, whatever shifter it is, most of it is missing in this photo. I have a syncro-loc I need to dis-assemble so I can get the stick re-chromed, but I haven't taken it apart yet, so I don't really know what it looks like inside.

    When the op said this wasn't even the shifter in question, I decided discretion was probably the better part of valor, and decided to bail.;)

    Google "Hurst shifter rebuild" and you'll find a lot of videos detailing disassembly, rebuild & assembly.

    Hurst has a service to rebuild the shifter for you, but they are pretty proud of their service and it is pricey.

    Have you got a photo of the shift levers that should come out the bottom? A four speed will have three of them.
    I don't remember ever seeing a Hurst brand shifter with that base/body on it but it could be a factory setup for some brand of car from the 60's or 70's
    The shape of the handle resembles the shape of the truck handle on the Hurst 3 speed in my 48 but mine bolts on just as most all other Hurst handles do.

    ^^I read this to mean the one in the photo isn't even the shifter hes working on. Maybe the op can clear that up??
