B&M Install on my C6....

What gives. Every time I go to do something by the book, there always seems to be something different about my situation. Here's the problem. I have a 1970 Galaxie 500 with the 351C and C6 tranny that I gave my 16 year old for his birthday. I bought a B&M shifter for him to have for his first install. The brackets that are made for the C6 don't fit, thats not a big deal. I have a welder and can fab it up. The problem is the shift selector shaft. I have no idea how to attach the provided bracket for the shifter to it. There is no nut I can see that would release the original bracket. The instruction show me placing the provided bracket over the bare shaft. Do I need to remove the pan to get the shaft off?!? I would think they would tell you this in the instructions...any advise? And I know, why would we mess up a Galaxie with a aftermarket shifter? Well he only got one gift this Christmas and he picked that...what can I say...

Re: B&M Install on my C6....

I think it is a FMX. I'm not too good on ford trans but heres the pictures of the trans. I figured I have the only trans that B&M doies NOT make an adaptor for. I only idea left it to remove the shift selector from the transmission and drill it for the cable adaptor. It should line up and so long as I get it in the right area of the adaptors arc I should be good. I just need to know how that selector comes off. If it is a big deal or not to do. Heres the pictures I posted on the tran forum.
Can you tell me what transmisson this is?
