Rated 5 out of 5 by from pertect fit My 1969 mustang auto shifter was sloppy, and I thought I would have to replace the whole thing. Popped this part in and it was like new! Just be careful not to snap the little plastic connection to the neutral safety switch like I did. That parts not cheap.It wouldn't hurt to upgrare the light bulb while in there to LED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! My shifter was shaking and was way too lose. It made me uncomfortable driving because I thought it would change gears. But I installed the Bushings and the shifter is rock solid. Feels great and sturdy! Heavily suggest this for anyone with a lose shifter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wobbly shifter? This is what you need to fix it. This simple and inexpensive part made a huge difference. Had I gone under the car before I started and seen the access hole/grommet, it would have been a 20 minute job. But still only about an hour. Shifting feels totally solid now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference! Just installed these on my '73 convertible. The old bushing (yes...1) was shot and the shifter flopped around from side to side. Installed these and it feels brand new! Can;t believe the change. Installation was fairly easy as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The little bushing made a big difference! My 73 Mach 1 had a few more items to remove from the shifter bucket then the car in the video, but no biggie. The replacement bushing from CJ Ponys made a big difference for just few dollars. If you have slop in your auto floor shifter this bushing will tighten it back to factory firm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just do this! As others have mentioned this is a miracle product. My auto shifter in my 66 Shelby Hertz care has been sloppy for the 30 years I have owned it. These little darlings and 2 hours of labor and the shifter is solid as when it was new. Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple fix My automatic shifter was loosey goosey. I took the whole thing apart down to the transmission linkage, but all it really needed was these bushings. Hopefully they will last, but, at least for now, my shifter feels like it means business!

Automatic Shifter Lever Rebuild Kit 1965-1993 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: If you own a '64 through '73 Mustang and it's equipped with an automatic transmission like our '71 convertible, one of the most common problems you're going to find is excess play in the shifter. Not only is this an annoyance for normal driving, it creates a safety issue because you can have trouble getting your Mustang into the proper gear. Many times, the shifter is actually not damaged. It can simply be fixed by replacing the plastic bushings that hold the shifter into the bucket. Today, we're going to show you how to rebuild your shifter in your automatic Mustang. For this installation, you'll need a jack and jack stand or a lift, Phillips head screwdriver, 3/32 Allen key, 9/16 wrench, 1/4 ratchet, 3/16 socket, 1/4 socket, 3/8 socket, 9/16 socket, a couple extensions, a marker, and safety glasses.

Here were can see how much play out shifter has. This is actually in park, but we can move it back and forth as well as side to side. First step in rebuilding the shifter is to remove the shifter housing from the car. To do that, we're going to start by disconnecting the shifter linkage underneath. We're going to remove the shifter arm from the transmission linkage located right here. Some of your early models, you got to pull a clip and slide it right out. On this model, we're going to unbolt it from this side here, so we're going to mark the linkage before we remove it. We'll remove the bolt. Then, we'll disconnect it from the linkage. Before we move on to the interior, you'll want to disconnect the wiring harness for the shifter, which is found right up in here.

Now, we're back in the interior. We're going to start by removing this shift handle from the shift lever. This small little retaining screw in the back here that you need to remove. We need to remove the console so we can access the shift plate to get the shifter out of the car. We're going to remove the screws that hold the shifter plate to the transmission tunnel. We're going to remove the four bolts that hold the shift bucket to the transmission tunnel. We can remove our stock shifter.

Now that we have the shifter on the bench, we're going to start by removing this plate here to access the bottom of the shifter. We're going to remove the light bulb from the housing up here fist. Then, remove this lower nut. We'll pry the lever off the arm and remove the lever from the bucket. Normally at this point, there'd be the remnants of some sort of bushing in this opening on both sides. In our case, there's nothing whatsoever, which explains all the slop on our factory shifter. Let me get the bucket cleaned up and install some new bushings.

I'm going to remove the ground, then I'm going to remove our wiring harness. Remove the lower seal and we'll get this cleaned up before we reinstall it. Now that we've got everything cleaned up, we're ready to begin reassembly. You notice on our shift handle, our indicator's broken off. We're going to go with this new piece from Scott Drake before we reassemble it. We'll need to remove this tiny metal plate-the original indicator and install that on the Scott Drake piece before you put it back on the handle. We'll reinstall our wiring harness. Reinstall the ground.

Now we're ready to reinstall our new bushings. We're going to start by putting some grease in this opening here before we put the bushing in place. Squeeze the bushing and slide it into place. We'll install the inner bushing. We're ready to reinstall our handle. We're going to start by putting some grease on the lever. Then, we'll put the lever through the new bushings. Line up the handle. Then, we install the retaining nut. We'll reinstall the light bulb for our shifter. The light bulb, the bucket seal, and the shield here are all available new if you need to replace them. Ours are all in good shape, so we're going to stick with our originals. Reinstall the seal. The last step is to install the lower shield. Make sure it goes under the indicator. We're ready to reinstall our shifter back into our car.

We're going to reinstall the shifter the same way we took it out. Start by fishing the harness down into bottom. We're going to reinstall this trim plate. Now we can reinstall the console top plate. I'm going to make sure this opening and the push button is visible in the T-handle when you reinstall it. That has to line up with this piece here to be able to shift the car properly. Once you determine the button works properly, you're going to retighten down the set screw.

Before we go back under the car to hook up the shift linkage, make sure your shifter's in park. That'll be the easiest gear to find under the car. We'll fish the shift light back up here and reconnect it. Now, we're back under the car. We left the shifter in park. You want to pull back on the shift linkage. Make sure it is also in park, which it is. Then reinstall it on the stud. It lines up perfect with our marks and now we're ready to tighten it back down. Our installation's finished.

Before we get the car off the lifter, off the jack stands, you want to make sure the shifter is indeed, engaging properly with the transmission. Start the car. Make sure the tires are off the ground. Try reverse and drive. Start with reverse, neutral, and now drive. Back in park. It's amazing the difference two plastic bushing make. Our shifter goes in gear exactly like it's supposed to. All of our play is completely gone. Installation should take you around an hour and a half. You'll be back on the road in no time.
