the round disk that has the shift pattern on it should come out revealing a nut. its gonna be tight. i used a very small straight blade screw driver to get the one off of my 05. they use the same tranny so it should be the same.

^^^^did that just thread right on, or did you have to put some sort of sleeve with the right threads in it? I was looking at doing a beer tap as well, and it seems like I remember someone saying that they just threaded right on.
I drilled a pool ball a little smaller than the shaft and just screwed it on. Fits tight and the size of the ball makes it great for shifting. Drilling the ball on the drill press was easier than i expected.
seems like a big chunk of cast iron on the end of your shift leaver would put alot of excess wear on your synchros. Like they say you shouldnt hold the shift knob when your just cruisin along because of your arm weight
does anyone now adays keep it vintage with the "8" pool ball?
becuase im about to do this mod.
ill "borrow" a pool ball from my place of employment.
(we have a pool table and bought like 3 extra sets ebcuase we keep losing em)

I'm not trying to toot my own horn but *honk - honk*... I made my shifter knob last year from my old Big Bertha Driver. I tried the golf ball thing but it looked way too small on my shifter so I went with my old driver. I finally had to retire the Big Bertha once I got my new hybrid. Enjoy~
