its cable operated so it should be an easy swap
sweet thanks for the info ... we are going to start taking some measurements this weekend and go from there so hopefully have it in within a couple weeksAs others said, its cable operated, so that should be easy. Just get a steering column cover from a manual trans truck. I have a floor mounted B&M Hammer shifter in my 81, I like it, but the damn thing just broke on me and replacement parts are 80 bucks.
It will definitely give you more control through teh gears than the column shift would, and makes it much more difficult to slip it into neutral while shifting on your own.
