I ran Lightning Rods in my Demon, and have a new set for my Coupe. I sold a few Lightning Rod shifters at swap meets over the years as well.
I have never seen a "four handles" Lightning Rod shifter?
Mine have three rods, P-R-N-3 then 3-2 then 2-1.
I sold my Demon to a local guy who phoned to tell me the tranny had packed it in, he said it was stuck in forward gear.
The shifters need to be shifted in order, he had the car in first gear, and was trying to run the right hand stick up through to reverse. It wasn't going to happen until he moved the two right hand rods first.
If you are familiar with them, they are simple shifters, but sometimes they can be a pain in the butt getting used to?
