I have an aftermarket stick shift in my 4 speed and cannot figure out how to remove it. The clutch has gone up and this is the only thing holding me up. Any help please.

push the silver "cup" down and twist counterclockwise(i think??) about 1/4 turn.

If you have to, remove the whole top cover. Otherwise there is a spring loaded locking ring that you have to push down on and turn CCW. Some have used 2 slot screwdrivers to push and turn.

Shifter "Cup"

I have a stock 3 speed from 73 and am looking for the name of that “cup” piece that holds the shifter in place. Does any one know what it is called?
Thanks
