Anybody know the thread size on the 5-speed shift knob? Buddy just bought an 86 truck and it's a nice truck but the shift knob is loose so the truck sounds like it's gonna fall apart unless you hold it. I gotta drive with him alot so if someone knows the thread on the shifter let me know please so I can get him the right size one. Its pissing me off lmao

wrap the thread with black tape then put the nob back on keep adding tape until it gets tight enough.

Most after market shifter nobs come with a little plastic insert that should work too.

Nah it's just the knob I was at pickapart today and a celica knob fit on, the tape is a good idea though
