gear knob

Guys my gear knob on my manual ea isn't that great and now its cross threaded and wont stay on. Im driving around with just the stick at the moment and it gets very hot if you leave it in the sun. Im wondering what other good gear knobs will fit... ba gt maybe? Also the rubber boot doesn't look very good im wondering if it can be replaced with a EB gt leather boot ? Are there any other good boots/knobs other then the rice stuff.

Re: gear knob

What colour is the interior? You could try one of the t-series leather momo gearknobs. You can get them in red/black, blue/black & if you look hard enough you could find the grey/black one. I have the grey/black one for my el & i got it from roman autotek in sydney.

Re: gear knob

EB GT boot fits straight in, pretty cheap also, and fits better than any universal boot that you might find. As for the knob, have a look at somewhere like auto barn to see if there is anything that you like.

Re: gear knob

the gear knobs from new falcons will fit. Genuine ford ones (made by MOMO) have a thread pattern but wont screw on. They do however have three threaded holes at the bottom so they can be screwed on like all other aftermarket gearknobs. However, the bottom part of the gear knob that goes over the rubber boot (the bit that screws on to the bottom of the gear knob and covers those three holes) wont fit due to the design of the gear stick (if don't understand what i mean let me know and ill take a photo of it in my car to explain). MOMO makes gear knobs that are pretty much identical to the ones used in the ba xr series and are a lot cheaper then the ones from ford.

Re: gear knob

I'm going to be putting in a BA XR gear boot with the metal look ring thing at the bottom in the ol' crate. A little modification here and there and I will have something no one else has, and I got it for free! They are about $80 retail :)
