Hi,
I am trying to find a brake down detailed drawing of the original Hurst shifter for my 1969 camaro.  I want to rebuild it.  I know I can get it done without it but as I get older, I am tending to research more before I jump into things. 

I have not started yet.  My first concern is; How do I get the bayonet style handle out of the lever?  Does anyone know this?  The rest won't be an issue.  If anyone can tell me where to get the drawing, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

A feeler gauge can be used to retract the tabs on the lever.

As for the rest who needs a drawing? Not much there. The spring can be a bit tricky to re-install; the only wear parts are the linkage bushings.

A piece of 5/8" steel pallet strapping works great... should be able to find some at any manufacturing plant, maybe at a grocery store...

Thanks for the replies.  I purchased a rebuild kit and assumed that I could use a feeler gauge.  Strapping may be better because it's stiffer.  William, you're right I don't really need the drawing,  just thought it would be nice to have.  Thanks again for your replies.

make a note or take picture of the location and the stack order of the 2 shims and the shifter plates. This is where people screw up on re-assembly.

Also look for wear on the reverse detent parts
