Okay that’s the image I need. But do you know if the gears are the same as a t10. Such as 1&2 the front 3&4 the rear

What are the numbers stamped into the round rods and the arms? Hurst stamped all their arms and rods with 4 digit numbers for the various 4 speed transmissions GM, Ford & Mopar

your reverse rod does not look right ( too long)
The Muncie reverse rod and the BW reverse rod should be # 3404 ( just like LaHotRids pictures)
The Borg Warner 1 & 2 rod should be # 2138 ( your rod does not look right - not enough bends
the Borg Warner & Muncie 3 & 4 rod the longest one- should be # 2139 (just like LaHotRods pictures)
the correct Hurst mounting plate to mount the shifter to the transmission is #1957773 ( for BW & Muncie)

Is your Hurst Shifter a new set? The Borg Warner Hurst shifter installation kit ( with all the rods, arms mounting plate for shifter) for a 1963 BW T-10 is # 373-4734
the correct Hurst shifter is # 391-7308

I have complete sets of Muncie and Borg Warner Hurst rods and arms on my parts shelf’s for pictures

Paul. I’m sure glad you know your stuff thanks again. I had a feeling something wasn’t right with the arms. So reverse is stamped Y1519, 3&4 gear rod is stamped 2139 20, 1&2 gear is stamped 2438 14, the mounting plate is 1957773.

I think you came make your shifter work with a 3404 reverse rod.
your 2438 rod is only for a Muncie four speed - it won’t fit your BW 4 speed. You need a 2138 rod

your mounting plate looks damaged - the top bolt hole is oblong instead of round with a threaded hole.
All of these parts can be bought individually.

Do your arm numbers match these #’s for a BW for 1963
1&2= 2140
3&4 = 2141
reverse = 2142

your shifter with this many wrong parts looks like its for a Muncie 4 speed and chrome shift handle looks like it’s
from another GM car from a later year shifter ( late 60’s Muncie)

Well it look alike I better order a new correct set. I don’t know what year the shifter came out of. It came with the car. I also noticed it doesn’t have the limit screws. Could this shifter have been in a corvette originally?

I have the original Hurst catalog sheets for all the GM cars from 1958 to 1970's. A BW shifter and a Muncie for 63 has similar arms/rods but a few different rods/arms as I have noted. Each car and transmission has a different kit and a specific shifter

I have collected sets of the BW and Muncie Hurst parts

Hurst arms and rods sold now(within the last year or two) "do not have the numbers stamped into the arms and rods -they come with sticker numbers on the arms and rods. Its something about the patent expiring and now anyone can make the kits and shifters.
Therefore in the future someone with a new set (not stamped into the parts) unless they have the original instructions on what car and transmission will not be able to tell what car they fit (the stickers will fall off or wear off.........
