Default How can I make my Subaru shift knob fit on my Nissan?

I've got an aftermarket Subaru shift knob thread 12x1.25 and I was wondering if there was anyway to make it fit on a Nissan with a thread of 10x1.25. I tried searching around if they made adapters for this but couldn't find anything.

I see universal shift knob kits out there so I was wondering if it's possible to maybe get a thread insert or something to put over the Nissan 10x1.25 shifter and then screw my Subaru knob on. If there isn't an easy way to do this it's not big deal, I'll just sell the knob to a Subie buddy.

None that I know of. The "universal" I used to have just slid down, then had 3 allen head screws that locked down on the shifter shaft. Easier to just sell it.

isn't that correct?
The outside can't be 10x1.25 as it's smaller in diameter then 12x1.25
so if you're trying to run a subaru knob on a nissan, that link you have is the correct one.

Hi, please let me know if your ordered that insert and it worked for you. I'm wanting to fit a 12x1.25 Toyota knob on a 10x1.25 Miata shaft. If this insert worked for you then it might work for me.

My only concern is theflange at one end of the insert. It's obvious it's there to stop the insert feeding all the way up the knob thread. I actually need it to feed deep into the knob. I might have to shave down that flange.

I put a momo shift knob off a subaru in my miata. I just wrapped the threads of the shifter with elecrical tape until it was thick enough to screw the knob on. It worked well. The knob would turn if you wanted it to, but it was pretty snug. And if you want to go back to stock, just pull the tape off and screw the original knob back on.

Why wouldn't you PM the guy instead of bumping an 18 month old thread, hoping he comes back to look at it?

^^^ Sorry, don't have an definitive answer for that.

But I can muster up the following...

1. There are those that love old threads that are still perfectly relevant today.
2. Who's to say the guy was going to read my PM at all.
3. It worked and a gentleman very gladly offered help instead of complaining it's an old thread.

I think he'd be more likely to read a PM than to look at his 1 1/2 year-old threads.
