Got my rebuilt Hurst 4 speed shifter back. - Stanglover - 02-13-2019

While it will be quite some time before I actually get to test it out, I just got my Hurst Competition Plus 4 speed shifter back from Hurst Shifters Online, wwwhurstshiftersonline.com  in South Carolina
It looks just like new. All the internals have been replaced or reconditioned and finished in Phosphate and hot oil. Turn around in my case was a little over 4 weeks,
 Just thought I'd post this as I'm sure others have an old, rough shifting shifter and might take advantage of this service. Cost for the OEM starts at $250 US depending on condition of the part returned. Ask Scotty for details.

The CORRECT centering pin (shown) is so much better than "using an allen wrench" of just any size !!

 I went one better Mark, I used a 1/4" drill bit!!
 The centering or alignment pin is just plastic, but it will find its way into my tool box after.

Nah, not that fussy, but that's a nice selection of hard to find shift linkages you have there!
As for the rubber boot that Ford only used, Hurst guy says NOT to use one. The boot will hold in moisture. There is not a repo for the 71-73 and for some reason I can't figure out, the only one that I found that is available for the '70 does not fit the 71. Same engine and trans, but perhaps the tunnel opening is not the same location. Hmmm!

Are you saying you put a Competition Plus Hurst shifter in your car? The factory installed shifter was not a Competion Plus. I have a NOS Competition Plus Hurst shifter in the box. Has white nob not black like original. 
The factory shifter actually has larger diameter shift rods than the competition plus and has a flat shifter shaft sort of like the 71 but still different. The Hust parts list the same shifter for 1965 to 1973.
Here are some pictures of the one I have. I think I paid $35.00 for it to go into a 65 A code 4 speed vert I have. It was in an old auto parts house and they actually tore it down a couple weeks ago. He had a stack of them for lots of vehicles, all gone now.

David, nice collection if pics, but I have to disagree. The shifter is the original '71 with flat stick and aluminum T handle.
The factory invoice does however just list it as "Hurst Shifter" I'll admit though I maybe assuming it is a Comp Plus as that is what I was told. I'll email Scotty at Hurst and find out for sure. Personally, I don't care as long as it works better than it did.

Believe it or not, this is about the best shot I have of the stick and T handle.

We're talking about the difference between the *factory* Hurst shifter unit and the *aftermarket* Hurst Comp Plus. They are completely different units that literally share no parts.


RE: Got my rebuilt Hurst 4 speed shifter back. - Stanglover - 02-14-2019

Ok guys, I never intended to get into a discussion on what is what. While I may have been mislead to some extent in the past as to what was a Hurst Competition Plus shifter, I emailed Scotty at Hurst Shifters Online, Hurst's rebuild service, and received the reply below. Given that they deal with every type of Hurst shifter for all makes, I believe he has explained to the best of his knowledge.


RE: Got my rebuilt Hurst 4 speed shifter back. - Carolina_Mountain_Mustangs - 02-14-2019

Maybe I put the wrong point across.
I think the Ford version of the Hurst shifter is better than what they called the Competition Plus. The shift rods on the Ford version are much larger diameter.
I remember back in the 60's & 70's at the strip Hurst would have a booth set up and do rebuilds the whole weekend. They use to honor their Lifetime guarantee but I guess not anymore.
