    i bought a sm465 4 speed for my cruizer and it did not come with a shifter the guys at clasic cruisers where i bought the trans told me that they did not have one and i should look in a salvage yard for one.
    after a lot of wasted time and phone calls i thought why not try the top loader shifter out of my l.c. 3 speed trany
    guess what it fits perfect and i have been using it for more than 2 years with no shift problems.
    just thought i would pass this on.

    I noticed they were pretty close. I've been thinking about trying the one out of my SM465 in my transition 4speed to get the different bend. Right now reverse is in the drivers seat cushion.
