Borg warner 4 speed

Hi, I just bolted up a 4 speed borg warner to my 69 camaro small block only to find out that the shifter rods hit the side of the transmission tunnel. I had the tranny in my 79 T/A which worked fine. I was kind of surprised because the tunnel in the 79 T/A is more narrow than my 69. I cut the hole in the tunnel myself (it was previously an automatic colomn shift) and everything lines up fine except for the rods. The shifter is not set up for a first gen camaro but i like the feel and placement better anyways. Can I turn the rods over and use them the other way? I think they would clear the tunnel but would that work? Or does anyone know where (besides salvage yards) I could get a set of rods that would clear the tunnel and be a direct fit to my tranny? Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I think you can fix it with a big transmission tunnel fabricating hammer.
