Will this Shifter Handle fit my T5 Shifter?

Do da link

http://www.hurst-shifters.com/?wpsc-...natural-finish

My shifter currently is missing the original shifter knob and it has knurled end with a beveled base. The beveled bas has 2 flat sides on it that gives the impression that it can be screwed off - is this the case? I tried it but was afraid to get on it too strong. It didnt budge. I would like to install the shift handle in the link if the provided thread inserts will thread on to my handle.

Looks cool...but also looks uncomfortible...
I like to palm my shifters..
Ya know,lay my hand flat on top of them..
Looks like it comes with plenty of adapters...

The T-5 shifter has a 3/8x16 threaded end. So yes it would work.
As for yours it sounds like you have the metal core of the stock knob still on your shifter. try putting a pipe wrench to the knurled part and try removing it.

Also, unless you bend the shifter, the knob will be leaning the wrong way. On that tall shifter, a ball type works best.

Hurst T-handles work great for a T5
