    The Hurst Indy Pick-Up shifter kit might work fine, at least according to Jeg's it will: http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...45821_-1_10523

    There's also the Hurst Mastershift, it's more expensive than the Indy but I'm not sure how much better it actually is.

    Most anything I do I use a Locar or Gennie which are a bit longer than the B&M ,Hurst etc so taste is the big issue as they all shift .

    Crazed Biker, I'm in the process of converting my 84 C10 back to a column shift from an automatic and would be interested in purchasing your linkage if you wanted to sell it. If so, drop me a note and let me know how I can get in touch with you and work the details. Thanks.

    Lawman, at least in the Ford world a "three on the tree" is actually a 3spd manual tranny with a shifter on the steering column, which requires different linkage than a 3spd automatic transmision. My truck used to be a "three on the tree" setup which has been converted to a TH350 tranny and a Megashifter slapstick, so I can tell you that only one lever is needed at the base of the steering column in order to shift a 3spd auto tranny, however the "three on the tree" has two. You might be able to rig-up the linkage for the auto tranny to one of these levers, but linkage will probably not work quite right.

    Ivan D., You are correct and reading back over my post I guess I wasn't clear. The truck originally had the "three on the tree" shifter and manual tranny. several years ago I converted it to a 700R4. I'm currently in the process of going back to the manual tranny as I'm rebuilding it and think the manual column shift set up sets it apart from others. However, when I started, I had no idea it would be as difficult to find the linkage as it has been or maybe I'm just not looking in the right places. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
