See anything wrong with this picture?


Seems that it just couldnt take another hard 2nd to 3rd shift. From the looks of it I broke a tack weld in the shifter handle itself... No idea what to do about it...

Now that is exactly why I don't want any Mazda parts in my SC.

it's hard to see exactly where it broke off. Did it break inside of the bushing ?
you could unbolt the handle from the shifter base and go find the top shifter section for a mustang, it should bolt up, albeit it wont have the bend and will be a little farther back, but it should work.

It broke off at the weld under the rubber bushing. And not one of the FEW junk yards will give me just the shifter.... They want me to buy the whole tranny. And as much as I need one with a 2nd synchro Im not about to buy another trans right now.

As in an upper from a T5 or T45 like from a Fox Body?

Yeah, the upper part of the shifter from a fox would work. If you have trouble tracking one down, I think I have an extra upper section laying around that I could send you for the cost of shipping. Would have to double check, but I'm pretty sure I have it layin' around somewhere.
