'65 Impala 4-speed shifter mount question
I just rebuilt the Muncie transmission in my 1965 Impala and found a problem with the shifter mounting plate. The mounting plate attaches to the tailshaft of the transmission and has 2 flat head studs that appear to be pressed in, kind of like a wheel stud. My studs are both stripped from a previous owner. Does anyone know of a supplier for these studs? I ordered a replacement mounting plate from Classic Industries (p.n.C662601) which clearly shows that it comes with studs, but it does not. I am guessing that these are grade 5 bolts that are splined into the plate, and they may or may not be fine thread. I need to get my car back on the road soon, even though it is snowing right now. Thanks for any help you can offer.
