                      Detent Plate

                      DJPEPE AND OTHERS

                      I can attest to the quality of Alexanders detent plate, as I installed one in my 58 last winter. It not only provides a solid secure position, for you shift lever but it is better than the original.In some cases as mentioned on this site " see detent plate" in search field older cars with worn detent plates had serious movement once someone shut the doors in a running vehicle due to the plate being rounded and worn.
                      I strongly recommend all older birds, order them and get them installed.

                        Detent Plate installed..Shifter still real sloppy.

                        I had hoped that the detent plate would solve the issue with my sloppy shifter, but I still have to hold it in Park to start up, and my shifter has just as much slop in it as it ever did...
                        Suggestions?

                          I would get a new "7210" shift lever then next, they are around $35 dollars. If that doesnt help solve ur problem and ur linkages are all okay, u will new to fork out a lil more cash for the shift collar housing. They are around $90-100 bucks through the T-Bird restoration vendors I think...

                            Detent Plate for 65

                            Does anyone know how to replace the dentent plate on a 65? Is there a diagram posted that I can use like the one above for the Square Bird?
                            Thanks,
                            John

                              Ordered a new detent plate for Pearl last week (dont know if she needs one, but better to be safe than sorry), and it is here in Australia already. The envelope was marked Sosiak, so the girls are still filling orders - thank you immensely Alexanders family!

                                Bill glad to see that you have a new detent plate for Pearl as you are right better safe than sorry. I ordered one for my 60HT for the same reason and boy do they work great and so solid. Marianne ( Alexander's sister ) is looking after the detent plate orders and yes she has the two (2) girls, one of which Kate10 visits our site from time to time.
