Shifter problem

Have a shifter problem, bought a universal 4 speed shifter from summit racing to hook up to a t10 tranny in a 67 Buick special after lining it up a total of 6 times now i still have the same problem it won't go into 3rd or 4th and has a hard time going into reverse, i can unhook the rods and the tranny shifts fine but with the shifter hooked up it seems to jam and won't go into the neutral position you can get it into reverse but it is real hard to do it and it will hang up trying to get it out and back into first, anyone have this problem with the summit racing shifters

Hi
Welcome to Hotrodders.com Pleased to have you with us

The best thing you could do to remedy your problem, would be to look for a used older Hurst shifter on e-bay or Craigslist, & then get a pit kit, there metal parts instead of plastic.
Good luck
Rich

Have you set the stops? The following is from Hurst but will be the same for your shifter:

What is the proper way to adjust my Hurst four speed shifter?

There is a 1/4 inch hole at the bottom of the Hurst mechanism that runs through all three levers. This is called the neutral alignment hole. To ensure proper adjustment, run the shifter from first into second and then back to neutral. Insert the neutral alignment pin (or a 1/4 inch drill bit) into the neutral alignment hole. If the 1-2 lever interferes with the smooth insertion of the alignment pin, remove the 1-2 linkage rod from the shifter and thread the adjuster button either in or out to eliminate the interference. Repeat this procedure with the 3-4 lever and reverse. To adjust the stop bolts, back the bolts out of the shifter frame until only a few threads remain. Push the stick firmly into third gear and hold. Screw in the stop bolt until contact is made. Release the stick and back the stop bolt out one turn and tighten the jamnut. Push the stick into fourth gear and repeat the procedure.
