Hi Poli84,

I have the OEM Shift boot complete for you form my car. If you PM me with your address I'll post it for you.

Cheers,
Paul

Still not installed??? trying to decide between this one and Function First. Seems like the function first sleeve will fit better over the own shifter since the cutout is oval shape and not circular like the WC Lathe Werks seems to be. Is that the case?

PS - anyone working on a plastic molded plate to go at the bottom of the rubber shift boot to seal off that area, a la Singer?

Hi,

Here's the black ebony shift **** to the measurements and spec I gave him and Streetdaddy's steel shaft (thanks Bud) installed in my re-trimmed interior.



I've left plenty of leather on the boot for a reason, in case I change to another shifter. We'll see how this goes first.

Cheers,
Paul

Still working on my interior, but this is how it looks so far with Street Daddy stainless steel sleeve and Manuel 917 shift **** replica.

I am doing a tip to manual conversion and have purchased the shift **** off Elihu. Happy with the ****, but I want the singer rubber boot set up also.

I am pretty certain that Singer uses the standard 964 rubber boot/bellows part number 99342413900 and trims off the lower rubber flat section, leaving only 4 bellows showing above the mounting plate, and one bellow below the mounting plate to hold the bellows in place.

I've held the bellows in my hand and looked at every available Singer photo I can find and they are identical. The only difference is that in a normal 964 the bellows are not visible as the leather boot sits on top, and the shifter is a flat bar, whereas with Singer the round shifter shaft is pushed through the rectangle hole at the top of the rubber bellows. Look closely at the singer photos and you can see how the rectangle hole ion the bellows is slightly distorted by the round shifter shaft. I'm pretty certain these are the rubber bellows Singer are using.

The mounting plate that holds the bellows is a little harder. I think they have taken two of the scoops used under the handbrake, cut the round end of both of them and made a mold out of it to form the mounting plate for the rubber bellows. Then cut a hole in the mounting plate that comes off the mold, and inserted the rubber bellows showing only 4 "kinks" of the bellows. Job done.

Now I have to make it work......

link : SWINE ELEVEN REBOOT 964 993 SHIFT BOOT TRIM PANEL

I produced a panel to allow the exposed boot look for a factory console (and as a result spent far too long looking at this potion of the car). I haven't looked up close at a Singer recently but believe that they're flipping the boot inside out and cutting the large block out, then stretching the shift bellow around the ****. The reason only 4 of the ribs are showing is the panel is still held at the bottom, but the console is lover than factory and their panel is more flat as a result. The key then becomes making sure the shaft below the shifter is just long enough to reach the bellow in a raised position while still covering the flat portion of the shifter.

I installed one of onelove’s cup/ boot pieces. Looks great but doesn’t work with the Function First shift **** like i thought. The boot can’t be stretched upward very far before it starts distorting with use. The FF shaft doesn’t go down far enough to be able to pull the boot over the lowest part. So i guess i will wait for a different shaft and then sell the FF.
