    I am in the process of getting closer to wrapping up my complete rebuild and need to find a shifter. Id like to find a lokar or similar dealer that can sell me a gated style case mounted shifter setup for a 700r4.

    Thanks

    I called Lokar and they helped me with the model numbers of exactly what I wanted then I called Summit and got a rep on the phone. He created new summit part numbers for the stuff I wanted and they showed up drop shipped from Lokar. Easy peasy
     
  3. A quick look, it looks like the Lokar gated may only be available for floor mount, not case mount.
    Call Lokar to confirm.

    Lokar carries Lokar stuff. They have always been responsive and helpful.

    Unless new part released in last few years there case mount are not complete gated , ( only P,R,N) . The one I have is over 10yr old .
    I really do not know why they do not make it that way , So I regarded mine, welding & File .

    Go to carbuffnetwork.com/news/gated-automatic-transmission-shifter/

    Lokar's gated shifter is made by Clayton Machine Works. Although floor-mounted, there are case-mount and cable adapters available.

    Try Pace Performance.

    I'm wondering if a gated shifter, particularly one with a long handle, might rattle more.

    If you computer has your regional location in it (mine thinks it is over about 180 miles from me for some reason) clicking on distributors on their web page header will give you the dealers in your area to pick from Lokar Performance Products
     
  15. I think OP has lost interest in this subject.

    Just go to their website and order directly from them:
    Gennie Shifter
    I've bought two for my cars and really prefer them over the other brands. (I have a Lokar button shifter, too.)

    Thanks I will do so. How is their customer service?
     

  20. Haven't had to try their customer service in the 23 years I've had mine, so I can't say. I like their detents and lack of a button!

    Very good. I’ve spoken with Nick (the owner) several times. Really nice guy.
