Application info for G-Bodies:
Code:
Shifter with appropriate stick:  391 8794
Shifter installation kit:        373 0017
Shifter body:                    391 5401
Stick only:                      538 8009


The '74-'81 F-Body with a T10 (w/o console) uses the exact same shifter body and stick, but uses installation kit 373 8609 (if you're swapping a BW T10 in).

The '70-'72 (no '73 listed...???) F-Body with a Muncie (w/o console) uses shifter 391 6848, same body but uses stick 538 6836 (538 8009 can likely be used since it's the same body), and installation kit 373 7897.

I figured an F-Body would be the closest to a G-Body since the overall body is a similar size.

sorry for the bump but this is great info. now my question. I just picked up a very nice 32 spline output M20 yesterday and plan on doing the manual swap


out of this info
r 391 6848, same body but uses stick 538 6836 (538 8009 can likely be used since it's the same body), and installation kit 373 7897.

now which of the two stick would be better to use?

Personal preference really.........the 8009 puts the shifter ball in easy reach - right off your knee, looking at the diagram - the 6836 moves the ball over approximately 1".
Six of one.........!/2 dozen of another.

You can mock up each shifter shape with coat hanger wire and determine which you like better.

Personally I'm getting the more-left-oriented shifter handle. Right now I have a cheapy I cut off of an old Mr. Gasket shifter, and it's uuuuuuugly.

I did the whole coat hanger deal, and it works perfect with the bench :)
