WTB warford shift lever

Post by birdacre » November 4th, 2018, 9:41 am

looking for a 28 warford lever??? actually just need the ball on end but might be better to find a good condition lever versus trying to glue or epoxy a golf ball on the end. any offers.

Balls are a lot easier to find than levers.

Do you have the threads on the end of your lever?

no threads. just a sharp square about 1/2 inch square, must have been molded in a bakelite type of material. i could cut and thread and put on a knob. i was not sure how common these levers were.

I notice in the illistration that the lever has a threaded on ball. Perhaps you could cut a bit off and drill and tap for a stud to go in. Then you have something to screw the ball to.

I measured mine and the thread is 1/2"-13. You can get the balls from Graingers or McMaster-Carr https://www.mcmaster.com/threaded-knobs
