From colum to floor shifting


Recommended Posts

From what I understand, you'll have to cut a hole in the floor, and find the floor shift kit for your trans, or get another trans that already was a floor shift (like out of an XJ. Then just pull the linkages off that went from the trans to the column, and open up the column to pull the branch out.

completely wrong. no offense.

 

the shifter is a cable operated device.

 

the hole is already there, it just has a plate over it. you actually don't need a hole, but you will need the floor shifter and the plate that goes below it to cover the hole.

 

so you need a non-column shift steering column,

a floor shifter assembly,

the floor shifter cable that runs to the tranny.

 

and the normal center console.

 

its all direct bolt in

In addition to the list above:

When you get the shift cable, also take the shift arm from the donor AW4 - there are a few different configurations.

 

If you are using a newer column without a key release then you need the shift interlock cable as well. Best bet is to get all of the parts from the same donor.
