I just installed a B&M ratchet shifter that I got off ebay on my 74 torino with a 3spd FMX. The install went fine and all the gears shift well. I like to shift the trans like it's a manual valve body, and you can't downshift from 3rd to 1st in one motion on the shifter, you have to ratchet into 2nd and then ratchet into 1st. Has anyone done any mods with a b&m ratchet shifter to make it possible to downshift 3rd straight to 1st? I'm not exactly sure what model the shifter is, so here's a picture of the mechanism.
