Thanks David,It would be heated and bent or re-drilled down low where you can't see it under the boot. My first preference however, is to ditch the heat and just cut it almost all the way through from rear to front just above the attachment point with an angle grinder and thin blade or similar, then bend forward and weld in-place. A wet rag wrapped around the upper shaft will prevent heat coloring where you can see it. Be sure to fit it up before welding to verify it both clears the console and doesn't let your knuckles bang the dash. Ask me how I figured that out...
Will those fit a 1965 Mustang 3-speed 3.03 Toploader? I didn't mess it up, but I really don't like it. I wish it was straighter in the middle.MyPoppy - if you mess it up, i have 2 or 3 T-handles around.
Which brings up a question - the 2 - T handles i can find right now, are identical except, one of em is quite a bit larger?
I don't know if it will bend the same as the 3 speed handle, but I was easily able to take some of the curve out of a 4 speed shaft in a large vise using a couple of 1x4's for protection and support. I put the bend into the center of the jaws crosswise and simply tightened the vise to make it straighter.Will those fit a 1965 Mustang 3-speed 3.03 Toploader?
