I have a 3 on the tree 76 Nova that I want to have a floor shifter on. Will a Hurst 4 speed manual shifter fit on a 3 speed, on the back, like it does on the 4 speed?!In the past, I put just a reg. 3 speed on the floor of the car, but never saw one bolted to the trans.

Most 3 speed transmissions won't have the holes on the tail housing that a 4 speed shifter needs for mounting. If you use a 3 speed mounting bracket, the 4 speed shifter should mount on that and shift ok. This may make more sense after you look at a Hurst catalog.

Right... I thought, a little after I posted this, that I would just need to make an adapter bracket to get my 4 speed shifter where I want it in reference to where the front of the seat is. Then, like I did with a reg. 3 speed shifter on another Nova, re-make the linkages. Thanks for the input, Ray!

Glad to hear you have it sorted out now. If you could post a pic of the bracket you made, it might help others in the same situation.
