I have a stupid question. What is the thread size and pitch for the shifter handle? I want to make some aluminum T-handle shifters and need to find out the size and pitch. I did a search but came up with nothing.

What did you use for search terms? "banana pudding?"

I just did a search for the words "thread size" and 6 of the first 10 threads were all asking the shifter thread size.

WOW, talk about a attitude. It was a simple question. No need for all that. But I typed in shifter. I figured "thread size" would be to vague.

Sorry if that twisted your nips. I just found it surprising that you couldn't find anything since it's been posted about so often.
Searching for "shifter" didn't return any immediate responses - most of those were about.... shifters.

If you had tried "shift knob" you would have found info on shift knobs, and a few of those discuss the thread size.

FYI, if you're looking for an aftermarket shift knob, the 4th gen Camaro and Firebird use the same M16x1.5 thread as the Fiero, so anything that will fit them will fit the Fiero. I've got a Hurst shift knob from a TA in my Formula.

I have the B&M shift T. Very very comfy and looks good too. I find the shape of it fits the hand well and it promotes cleaner and more accurate shifts

Sounds nice. I'm using a Rodney Dickman Sport OEM shifter, so it's a bit taller than his Competition shifter, and it's polished stainless. It makes it look like a factory style Hurst shifter similar to the F-body setup.

Not trying to get too far off topic, but since the initial question had been answered....

Thanks for the input and pics everyone. I want a T-Shift handle, but I have to fabricate my own because, I want to have my company name engraved in them.
