Shifter mechanism
« on: October 10, 2018, 05:03:50 PM »
This past winter when I converted my Challenger to a 4-speed, I bought Brewers shifter mechanism, it's the Hurst competition one, the mechanism has a bad rattle above 2500 RPMs on up! I just want to know if anybody else had this issue,I have to keep my hand on the shifter to keep it from rattling,I know it's not the pistol grip handles or the top bezel as I had them removed and still did it.

Did this vibration happen right after you did the conversion? Does it do it in neutral? Could be the wrong flywheel. Drive line angle if it starts at a certain speed. Need more info to try to help.

The stick should be bolted into the shifter correct , are the bolts loose ?

Nothing is loose everything has Loctite, basically everything is brand new, it's not in the driveline, it's definitely coming from the mechanism, it just seems that there was a lot of slop in itI'm going to call Brewers and see if they could exchange it

Well, maybe the shifter is at fault....however...something is shaking the shifter to make it rattle...if the car ran smooth as silk the shifter would be quite ?

UPDATE!  Lol,. So I  figured  out what the problem was, it was the top bezel on the shifter handle, that was the only thing I did not takeoff and glue with silicone, but now it's siliconed and now the noise is gone!!
