Hello folks -
Back in 2017 I started a thread on floor shift concepts. It kicked off with Paul Flaming @pflaming who had made a shifter
for a straight 3 speed. He was planning to work on a version for an overdrive and got a prototype which was a 2 shifter concept.
The other one was Ron Allworth's who had made one for a buddy. He had gave consideration to try and make production versions but the demand wasnt there, a lot of people were really hoping for something for the r10g1 Overdrive version and to be honest Ron is
always swamped with CoolViewThermostat.com
Your can always check out that original blog and comments through this link.
Recently the thread drew some revised interest and I decided to circle back with Paul and Ron to see if they had done anything further. While neither really have Ron Allworth was so kind to forward his original hand drawing he made when he was making the shifter for his buddy. He said - "I think this is pretty much all someone would need to reproduce what I did. Feel free to post the drawings, but unfortunately I just don't have time to help anyone if they decide to build one"... "i know as previous comments, it's somewhat over engineered but you can be as hard on it as you want when you shift and it wont break."
With that - here is Ron's sketches The shift pattern is standard, reverse is left and forward, 1st is left and back. 2nd is straight forward and 3rd is straight back.
Oh and if you want to check our Ron's other cool stuff here is a link for that
