The NightStick offset shifter for the Tremec TKO500/600 is perfect for applications that require a specific shifter placement. This unit comes equipped with a 1" side offset and 1/2" back offset. Ideal for 68-69 Camaro/Firebird factory console use, but can also be used for many other custom applications.
The Night Stick shifter is sent out with a predetermined shift lever location set. If you should need or want the shifter in a different location you can easily adjust the settings.
The upright for the shift lever is held on with a nut and interference fit similar to that of a ball joint. This piece can be rotated 360* and can be locked back down in any position. The holes that attach the shift lever are threaded all the way through so you can mount your shift lever from either side. We always recommend using locking nuts, washers, or thread locker for the shift lever attachment bolts to prevent them from coming loose.
The offset base bracket also has an octagonal pattern machined into the attachment point to allow full 360* rotation as well. Simply unbolt and rotate to whichever position is best for your application. Additionally, 1" or 2" side offset adapters are available for other custom applications.
The TKO500/600 NightStick design retains the use of the original Tremec base plate. The Tremec TKO transmissions have a proprietary bias spring design used to locate center on the shift rail. We felt that there wasn’t any reason that this needed to be re-invented so we opted to redesign the shift stub pin to allow us an attachment point for the offset shift lever bracket. We pre-assemble and ship you a completely new base plate and stub to ensure that the bias springs are set to the correct pre-load.
