Hey guys, it's been awhile since I've been around but I got a great project this time. It's an 85 Chevy g20 conversion van. The drivetrain is coming from an 88 g20 conversion van. The question I'm having tonight is about the shifter setup. I'm struggling to find a compatible steering column (I destroyed the one from the 88). So what my idea is is to convert from steering column shift to a floor shift. Has anyone else encountered this problem? And if so, how did you fix it?
The shifter I'm looking at is a Lokar Part Number: 625-CM700AM

Thanks in advance

So what's the deal with your 85 column, why won't that one work? I haven't swapped to floor shift, but I've had a lot of experience with different column shifters from 3 speed manual to automatics.

The 85 colum is notched/ indexed for a th350. The new tranny is a 700r4. I could use the 88 column except it was destroyed during a lost key moment. Hence the floor shifter idea

Ah gotcha. Lokar should have everything you need to mount a floor shifter. As for deleting the old column shifter, that's a tough one.

Lokar
