Seat is in now for the shifter. Does anyone have a photo of the lower attachment point of the shifter. I have one of the top but I cannot see where the bottom mounts to. Any help would be greatly appreciated. After that, onto the brake pedal, finished the clutch and throttle pedals and half the steering column over the weekend. Slow but making progress. And for those keeping track, all the suspension is done and it has been on it's wheels and rolling.
Thanks John, it is where the bottom pivot part is that I need to see. I had looked at all those and even just about had my nose on the screen but I still couldn't see under those frame tubes . Yes that sold section has been very helpful. Thanks though.
I took my novice day in a 61, but I don't remember anything too special about the shifter.
IIRC, the main shaft is pulled/pushed/rotated concentric with the upper bushing (as you probably know) and the lever bottom protrusion slides left/right (shaft ratation) between two plates spaced out from the cowl bulkhead. You can see these plates and their mounts at each end of the plates in the pictures.
hopefully one of the other guys can get you some good photos soon. good luck!

I have made my shifter thanks to the explanations. I thought it was on a spherical beering or something at the bottom but then it would not slide left and right. Anyway, thanks, it works fine. Actually pretty simple when you look at it.
