I thought I'd share this accessory for Christmas day. The shift knob was my Grandfathers from the thirties. The photo is if my Grandmother. If the threads weren't stripped I'd be using it on the Ruckstell shifter on our speedster.
While a bit off topic I thought I'd post a picture of my Grandmothers dog tags from WW1 that I keep in the display case next to the gear shift knob. She was in the signal corp stationed in New Jersey during the war. My Grandmother wore this on her key chain until she passed away at 92 years of age.
I'd fill that with a two part epoxy, and re tap it, or if you never want to remove it just epoxy it on,
Yeah, Jay, I bet Qwik-Poly, or something similar would have you shifting in no time.
Great keepsake Jay!
Looks like an easy fix –
