Shift knob size??

Hey guys. Would a shift knob that says it fits 5/16" to 9/16" fit my 02 gt? (8-15mm)

Yes, the shift knob thread is M12 x 1.75. However it sounds like it is a "universal" knob that comes with unthreaded plastic inserts, so while it will fit--it will fit like crap...

Saw it at advance for like 20 bucks. It was a .44 magnum novelty shift knob. Just thought I'd try it for fun

Kinda' neat, those universal fit knobs can be fun however it is usually a limited engagement as the finish wears off, the plastic inserts distort, and it starts looking like crap and wobbling around...

+1. The plastic wears out really quick. I tapped an orange "5" ball for my shifter and love it!

I make shift knobs from billiard balls, using aluminum inserts and jam nuts for those that require alignment:





drilling the ball:


machining the bushing:


finished bushing:


The bushing is epoxied into the ball.

I used this ball to make one for a customer, then one for myself:

^ give this man your patronage! I really like mine, and I tapped the ball with no insert, and use thread tape. Cliffy's way of doing it is even nicer. If you have big hands it's a great feel.

I mostly sell at local shows, however I can certainly ship them. I have cue balls and 8-balls in stock but can order a wide array of others including the eagle, and other billiard ball and a variety of cue balls with team logos, etc.

PM me...

What operating system and browser are you using? They are just straight HTML IMG links to my hosting server--same as the photo of my car in my signature...

I will speak to my hosting service about this, there should be no reason from my end that you cannot view the images. Can you see this (I limited the size):
