Default kartboy short throw shift issues w/stock knob ideas??

ok i screwed my shifter up when i installed it the 1st time damaging the threads with a hammer ya rookie mistake i know. so the knob wouldn't thread onto the shifter due to the damage. got a tap and die set and the threads were bent at the top, like the 1st 2-3 rows, so i could not make a clean pass through the die. i cut off the bent threads ran it through the die and cleaned the threads.

I tested the smoothness with a lug nut and it spins on effortlessly.

now here's the issue. the knob still won't thread on! any ideas on this? i'd like to use this shifter since i got a killer deal on it.

Thanks
B

I would check the thread pitch on both the shifter and the shift knob just to make sure they're the same because It sounds like that's your problem.

Run a tap in the knob. 99% sure that got boogered up while you were trying to run it over the mushroomed shifter. Easy mistake. simple fix.

im not quite sure what the knob looks like so i wont be able to say for sure. the following ideas is based on my own stock shift knob and kartboy ss.

when i took a look at the threads inside my shift knob, i noticed that it was burried fairly deep. so if all you did was cut the threads on your ss, it might be too short to thread properly into your shift knob. im not saying this for sure, but its just an idea

no it should work still the same..i only removed 2-3 threads..i'm going to try what tom suggested and also help him by rubbing coco butter on his boobies to avoid stretch marks

thanks guys....o tom you crack me up!

well i got it on...it actually would not thread on because it was now to short to thread onto the knob. i had to drill out the base of the knob by a hair. got it right on and working perfect! now i just need to do the bushings.

thanks
