Correct Part No for Boss 351 Reverse Lockout Rod
#1
Two being sold on eBay with same part numbers, D1ZA-7B112-AA, but look very different. Which one is correct and why would they share the same part number?

TexasBoss,
Do you need the reverse gear shift rod or the reverse lockout rod as stated in the header of your post? The 7B112 rods in your illustration are reverse gear shift rods. I've noticed that a large majority of shift rods sold on different sites are incorrectly labeled as to their function. 

The shifter rods are the same for the 71-73 351C and 71 429 4 speed cars.
1st/2nd gear: Part# D1ZZ-7328-A (Engineering ID# D1ZA-7328-AA or AB).... 12"
3rd/4th gear: Part# D1ZZ-7326-E  (Engineering ID# D1ZA-7326-AC) 19" 
Reverse Gear: Part# D1ZZ-7B112-A (Engineering ID# D1ZA-7B112-AA 16"
Lockout rod: Part#  D1ZZ-7E330-D (Engineering ID# D1ZA-7E330-DA)  11"
There was a change 11/15/71 involving the 3-4 shift rod for the 72-73 4 speed Mustangs. The D2ZZ-7326-B rod was 27/32" shorter  @ 18 5/32". So It is possible to see some of these on 71 cars as it was also a TSB part.

This rod is the lockout rod D1ZZ-7E330-D (ID# D1ZA-7E330-DA)

I hope this has helped some and not made choosing the one you need even worse!  Big Grin

Steve,
Excellent tutorial on the various shift rods. Yes, I was looking for the lock-out rod.  I found the original lock-out rod in the trunk of my 71 Boss and it looks like its been underwater the last 50 years.  However based on the prices in ebay I will restore my rusted relic.  Thanks again.

Looking at the picture of your original lockout rod, you definitely can save that. Just let it soak in some "Evapo Rust" for a couple of days and then use a green scotch bright pad to clean it up a bit afterwards clear coat it and you are good to go.
