Stainless Steel Reproduction for Column Shift
$165.00
NO MORE BROKEN IGNITION TIPS

The ignition switch rack gear pulls and pushes this tip of the rod to activate the ignition switch. GM made approx 8 different ignition actuator rods that use the 'shift interlock' design with a sliding cable. This tip can be used on all of the designs with a column shifter that had a cable. With this redesigned tip, you can NOW ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR THE INTERLOCK CABLE.

We have reverse engineered this piece and made it from Stainless Steel instead of the original cast 'pot metal'. This tip can be easily installed for a long lasting repair. Once installed, you no longer need the interlock cable or solenoid.


How To Install the New Tip on the Old Rod

Remove the old rod


We recommend using a small 'lighter torch' (butane) to heat (warm) the casting where the rod is pinched. As you are heating it, VERY GENTLY wiggle the rod out of place without bending the rod.


Install the new tip


Transfer the old rod to the new tip and gently pinch the rod into the steel tip using a vise. Make sure you allow the tip to extend THROUGH the rod. It should snap into place and be fairly tight. If necessary, heat and crimp the new tip to secure it better. Be careful...If you break it, you own it.
