    Thanks all

    Couple things I forgot to post about. The shifter that I chose to use in the car is a hurst promatic 2 ratchet shifter.

    https://www.jegs.com/p/Hurst/Hurst-P...45831/10002/-1

    Reason I chose this shifter is it is a full ratchet shifter from neutral to 3rd gear, has an NHRA approved reverse lockout, and unlike most ratchet shifters it does not have any levers or latches to pull in order to put it in park. To go from neutral to Park you just lift up on the shift lever and push it forward.

    This video shows the shift pattern, except my trans would be PNN123

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KkQpa3vgJCs#

    The idea was to fit this under the factory center console and not have any latches or anything showing. In order to fit it under the stock console I had to drop it down into the trans tunnel so I made a box to mount it into and cut a hole in the tunnel for it.









    There was a couple things I did not like about this shifter. The handle was at a goofy angle and too short, and I did not like the shift gates on it. I took it apart to modify to my liking.

    Here is the shifter disassembled.



    Here is the shift gate. Park is on the upper right and the slot on the lower left would be to ratchet from neutral-1,2,3. I forgot to take a picture of it afterward but I reshaped these slots so in neutral you can just lift up the shifter and go straight to park without clunking through reverse. Same for going from park to neutral. On a transbrake th400 in order to put the trans in reverse you actually have to put the shifter in neutral and push the transbrake button, so you never use the reverse shifter position anyway.



    For a shift handle I cut off the original and tig welded the stainless steel handle that I had laser cut for my T56 and angled it to get the shift position right.

    Here is the parachute mount. Its just a piece of 1-1/2 dom tube going through the rear bumper into the trunk and welded to my rear frame crossmember. There is a piece of 1-1/4 dom tube that telescopes inside it and acts as the actual mount so it’s removable by just taking out one bolt.



    Here is where I F’d up. I just eyeballed the length without the bumper trim on.



    shit



    I had to cut out the bumper trim for the bolt to fit in and out because I’m a retard



    The clevise for the drag line is made from a piece of rectangular tubing. It’s important that the drag line can rotate around the pin without friction or it will tear up the loop so I made an inner and outer sleeve and greased it so it rotates freely.

    Tracks are all closed for the winter in MN. I want to try to get to a track in Wisconsin this weekend but I'm in the middle of a bunch of remodeling so I don't know if that will happen.
