    Ha - let me look tonight - I expect it went in the box of bits and pieces in the garage when I swapped it.

    Will let you know tomorrow unless I forget, which is quite likely!

    OK, not the greatest photo and it's off the car at the moment. Made this up when I built the car. Wanted it to sit as low as possible on the stick so it's drilled right through to just under the top surface, also wanted the shift pattern to be on the top of the knob even though the stick points forward about 45°. All well and good until a couple of years ago when I changed the gearbox from LT77 to R380 which has the doble H pattern rather than revers being off top left.
    Still use it though as I can't make another now, no machine tool access.

    The night before last, I had a post all ready in the REPLY box when the site decided to go down on my knob pictures. It would have been post 8, but I havn't been able to connect to the site until today. Since then almost all I had to contribute has already been done by others. Regardless, here's my original post even though it's a bit late:

    As per your request, here’s pictures of my knob:



    There are different versions of these knobs available, most, if not all, screw on with a ½” x 20 thread.

    They are a bit small at only about 1.75” diameter, yet are a good ergonomic fit to the palm of your hand.



    My shift lever came with the knob as shown in the upper right. I have no use for it, and if you want a small knob, with that shift pattern, that you can screw on, then you can have it.

    I installed a 5-speed in my car, so my knob is the one shown in the lower left of the picture.

    The nice thing about these knobs, is that you can screw the top on the shaft on until the pattern is in the right orientation, and then bring the bottom up and the two can be locked together.

    Plus they are all more or less the same as those handled in the original Cobra’s.
