First let me say that I have no more scrap material to make anymore,
nor will I have anymore for a long time. So please do not PM me for
requests. Thanks!

These knobs are for the ZF6 manual trans. I had some scrap material
sitting around and made one for a member. He is more than welcome to
post some pics with it on his shifter rod.

I used 2" aluminum with a 1" stainless steel rod insert. The shifter
rods on the ZF6 trans are splined for the stock knob. So I bored out
the knobs about .005"+/-.001 over the size of the shifter rod splines and
used a stainless steel set screw. The one knob marked #1, I accedently
over bored the hole .010", but with the set screw I see no issues with
the fit. 4 of them are made out of the same material and one
that is solid stainless. All 5 are about 2" round, but they are
diffrent in length.

It was reported back to me from the member, that the knob fits good.
The only issue was that it gets hot sitting in the sun all day.

I will be giving these away to the first five members that want one
for thier ZF6 trans. JUST PAY SHIPPING!! First come first serve!
Please reply to this post with what number knob you want. I will PM
you for your address.

Starting with the far left is #1-2-3-4-5
#1&2 are 2.500" long
#3&4 are 2.200"long
#5 is 1 7/8" long

Thanks guys, with the right equipment anybody could do it, it's almost like running a wood lathe.

I still got 4 of them to give away.
