NV3350 Shift Tower Assembly Replacement

The shifter on my NV3550 is loose and sloppy. It just wobbles around in neutral and will grind gears if I am not careful shifting into 3rd and 4th. I took it apart last night and found a decent amount of play in the shift tower.

I think it should be replaced but I can't find a suitable replacement. I have seen the Hurst and B&M which look really solid but I'm not really into that price. Is there a good aftermarket replacement shift assembly that is a bit more modestly priced?

I got this one and it works great. Just like the factory one but without the part numbers. It says it's made by New Venture even though they are no longer around. Could be old stock or maybe made by whoever made the shift tower for NV.

Cool, it looks like the shift stick is a stubby in the pic. Did it come like this or is it actually longer?

You'll have to remove your shifter from the shift tower and swap it.

Note: '03-'04 NV3550s use a different connection. However, the square nub is what you need for your '01.

Thanks, I went back and took a second look at the shift tower assembly last night and realized the shift stick was a two part assembly so that the tower could be used in various applications. Went ahead and ordered the part. Thanks for your help!

Np! Make sure you run to the hardware store and get those two bolts and nuts as shown in the thread I linked, or you won't be able to separate the shifter from the tower.
