Hi-Lo handle

Recommended Posts

thedaddycat
A while back I recall a post asking "Why save Junkers?". An extension of that would be "why save junk?". Well, I have a Hi-Lo hat has everything but the stock knob for the shift lever. Here's my custom handle, made from an old broken ratchet picked out of the trash. I knew that eventually I'd find an application for it. It is drilled and tapped 7/16-14. Since I am planning to put the Hi-Lo on the 2012, does anyone have a stock handle for one of these that they'd sell or trade? Thanks

Kirk, Nearly everything that I have has been reconstructed from junk. Tools, cars, tractors, etc. I hate to see anything useable thrown away. So much junk stored in my garage that you can barely walk through it. Unfortunately, I have turned my wife and kids into "packrats" just like me. Rod H.

Thanks Rob, I tried another knob from (I'm pretty sure) a shifter and one from a PTO lever. They are threaded for smaller shafts while this one has the same threads as the BGB and tranny side plate bolts. No great rush on this though as I need to get my new input shaft for the BGB and put both it and the tranny back together yet. That will be the weekend project.......

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
