Broken Shifter Lever

I was changing the shifter knob the other day and snapped it right off my shifter lever. I'm having a heck of a time finding a replacement shifter lever for my Borg-Warner SR4. However, I have found several shifter levers for the Borg-Warner T5. They look identical. Can anyone tell me if both trannys use the same shifter?

No they do not. Where they bolt to the transmission is different.

Nickmil, thanks for the reply. Any chance you could point me in the direction of a SR4 shifter lever? Apparently, every Jeep part company in the country has ones that will fit a T5, but not an SR4.

Im assuming that it broke off at the bottom of the threads? If so, it would be easy enough to have a bolt welded on there or re tap it. If you want to change then try this place........

But I am sure there are some easy fixs for ya. Maybe try posting apic of it and see what people say. Save your self the money.

What are the chances of squaring off the broken shift lever and cutting new threads. It will be a little bit shorter than before. Now the shift throws will be shorter.....

Where is it broken off? Maybe if you can post a pic we can help with a "budget" fix. The SR-4 shifters are getting harder to find as it's common for them to wear out or break. Try JW like posted above, or maybe Collins Bros. Jeep Parts. I know they advertise in many of the 4 wheel drive rags.

It's very easy to drill and tap the shifter. I installed a short threaded rod with loctite and replaced the knob and locknut.
