Are tranny shifter threads all a standard size?

Can someone tell me if the threads for the shifter on a stick shift are all the same? Not where the handle threads on, where the stick itself threads onto the transmission shifter. The one that came with my nv4500 was apparently made to stick straight up, and only has some type of rubber inside to hold the stick onto the nut that threads onto the tranny. When I heated it to bend it, the rubber melted and the stick is pointing straight back and then up, so it would just spin when I moved it left or right. So I just bent it into place and then welded the nut to the stick. Well, my weld held good, but the metal the stick is made out of didn't, and the stick cracked. So will any truck shifter work? Or is it the tranny that matters? Or is it American or foreign? Thanks for your help.

I do not know the answer to your problem. I'm not even clear on the "rubber inside to hold the stick onto the nut that threads into the tranny", part of the description.

Maybe this link will help you. It is a 3 page read, with pictures, on a tranny swap with links off to other NV4500 sites. Even a NV4500 shop manual is available at one of the links for a very "frugal" price.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Good luck!
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I know this doesn't pertain to your current problem or post.
It's a bookmark I made for a friend who has a 4500 in his Jeep. He found it very interesting.
It's on the NV4500's proper oil requirements, should be a must read for all owners.
May save buying a second 4500.

Maybe you knew all this and I've wasted your time. If I have - I'm sorry.
All the best.

Re: Are tranny shifter threads all a standard size?

Thanks for the links. I thought it might be hard to picture from just describing it. It's not anything inside the tranny that's the problem. Here's a pic of how it is on there and what happened.

The blue is the rubber inside that melted. So the stick would twist without moving the shifter after I bent it into place. So I then welded the nut to the shifter. Now I cant remove the shifter without cutting it off, then unthreading the nut. It still shifts now, but it is loose since it cracked. Since I have to cut the shifter off to remove it, I'm just trying to find out what shifter will work so I can still drive it until I get the right size shifter. I would also like to find one that didn't use the rubber inside and actually had the nut made onto the shifter to avoid this problem. So does anyone know if most shifters use a standard size?
