Slide over. I actually cut mine in half to fit in the car I am running so I am using the top 4 bolts only.
I buy cars year round. Mopar, GM, & Crown Vic's
NASCAR does not bother trying to show you sh!t cause thye are LONG past the derby engine point. When you can build a 358 on a only a highly restricted 750 and all Holley parts, to turn 9,000 RPM's and make 875 HP and on a open 830 turn 11,500 RPM's, make 1000 HP and do it for 6 hrs I may listen to your useless historical jibberish.
i used the shifter bracket as part of my trans brace.... and just unbolted the handle to install in the car... had to clearance the bracket to clear the nerat tail shaft on the drivers side.... but the bell housing and tail shaft went on great
An hour with a grinder and the bracket slides all the way over, it was probably worth the hassle as opposed to cutting it. Also, this was on a long shaft TH400, I have never paid attention to differences between short and long but that could have added to the misfit.
Did you use the front plate bolted to the bellhousing? That thing was a pain to get slid back, I ended up doing some reshaping there too, I don't know how I could have gotten the back two pan bolts on with the 1/2 brace plate bolted to the steel bellhousing anyway so I made the bottom part of the opening bigger. I may have to cut the thing completely when it has to come off the tranny now that the brace is welded up to the front .
