I'm pretty sure that spring is not available repro anywhere so you will have to find a good used one or make something work.
Is it a standard or automatic trans?

cant find it on some interchange sites and don't have a Hollander guide.

It don't show in a Hollander either since it is considered part of the column. You will need to find someone willing to take it iff a column and the factory auto columns are not very easy to come by. It is not the same as a stick column, I just looked at my parts truck to verify. :anim_25:

What is the part number of that spring? I can't quite read it. I can compare the # in my parts books and see if it's the same as early 50s Chevy cars, a lot of the car column shift parts are the same as truck. This info can widen your search.

I found a spring on ebay. Paid too much im sure but it fits right and seems to have the correct tension. next issue is I have a powerglide shift rod that is about 3" too long with a hydomatic shift detent linking to a turbo 400 transmission. wondering if anyone has seen another shift rod, has the end flattened on two sides to receive the neutral switch at the end.
I want to find a second rod before I cut the one I have down. any ideas?
