Also; the factory shifter on a New Process 833OD was made by Hurst. If you can make it fit in your car, its a great shifter.

|junior stocker||Technically, it's a 319 trans with the OD unit attached. And they are weak as already noted. Hurst USED TO make a shifter for them, no more, and finding a used one is difficult; everyone is looking for them. You could probably adapt a shifter if you have any fab skills; it's the position of the solenoid that complicates everything. You might want to think about using the retooled MOPAR 833-A 4-speed used in some Chev/GMC trucks; that trans was redone to make 4rth gear overdrive, and Hurst does make a shifter for them.

Tough and muncie 318 don't belong in the same sentence. Back in the day (mid sixties) anyone with one of them carried a spare tranny in the trunk. Thankfully only a 45 minute swap in a parking lot somewhere.
Hurst makes a 3 speed Mystery shifter for them. Or there are some gm shifters also available. Search for 3 speed shifter on ebay.
And Welcome to the forum!!
