I don't think it is the adpater so much as the Hurst shifter. The base of the adapter fits right where the base of the Hurst shifter handle would go. In my instance, even before I mounted the handle I could see it the shifter itself was a bit higher but mine was more like 3/4" or soGot one of the Auto Krafter's brackets. Didn't like the way it made the Ford handle stick up about 2 1/2" taller than stock. I figured out that I can make one and lower the handle about 1 1/4". I'll see how that works.
