Ancient thread, can’t believe it’s been more than a decade since I started on my engine rebuild and W58 conversion... stupid life...

Anyway, what I ended up doing was re-drilling the engine mounts so the engine/trans sits about 1/2” back. With the 530mm shift housing that came with my W58 (yes, I got lucky!), the shifter is pretty much perfectly centered now.

I’m using the short-throw shifter found on e-bay. It’s taller than I think is appropriate, so will cut it down some.
