RE: SVO: Shifters

Yep! Mine did the same thing last year. I've now got a TBird shifter on
there with different bolts and no rubber.

If your shifter is stock you can do this... I couldn't get the bolts
from Ford (even though I think they still may be avail, Jim what do you
know about these?) So I took the little threaded part of the screw that
snapped off and brought it to the parts store. I asked the totally
incompetent sales person to take it and find the smallest diameter Brake
line that it would drop into. bought the line for like $2. Hacksaw off a
piece the length of the original bolt's shaft and epoxy it over a
standard 5 cent bolt. This works great iffin you can't get the orrig.
