Hurst Competition plus setup

I just got a hurst competition plus shifter for my 67 camaro RS.
the car currently has a powerglide in it but I pretty much have all the parts to conver it to a 4 speed. I have a muncie M20 that was just rebuilt. Originally I had bought a muncie repro shifter but I was told by a friend (the guy who rebuilt the trans.) to take it back and get a hurst. Has anyone installed a hurst before and are they very difficult to setup ??

the hurst shifter is simple, the trans swap from a powerglide--not so simple!!!

The Hurst Competition Plus shifter is very easy to set up and is one of the best shifters you can buy. None of those funky looking lockout levers all over it.

to set up the shifter, you need to place it in natural , of course. Then look at the side of the shifter housing and notice a hole (1/4 I think) the purpose of the hole is to allow one to slip a bit in. As you push it in it will want to hit the shifter arm adjust buy moving the arms so that the bit will move through and onto the next arm. When it is aligned the bit will go through all three arms. With the trans in neutral and verified attach and adjust the shifting rods (3). Remove the bit. put the trans into 1st and then adjust the linkage stop at the rear of the housing so that it just touches the shifting arm and lock down with the jam nut, go to second and do the same. The jam bolts and nuts are located on the front and rear of the shifter housing. Nothing to do with the shifter, just a reminder do'nt forget the pilot bearing for the crank.

Techron,
I haven't converted one before but a friend recently swapped his powerglide for a 4 speed and 2 guy's did the swap in one day. there were a few challenges with the starter and the wrong clutch fork for but otherwise he said it went pretty smooth. He also has a 67 camaro.
