If you're going to make it from scratch, customize it to fit you perfectly, don't copy the stock shifter.

Approximate dimensions working from the bottom up:

1.25" = height of bottom clamp

6.25" = top of the clamp to the knee of the shift arm (includes the vibration damper section)

8.25" = from the knee to the base of the shift ball

2.125" = shift ball diameter

M12x1.75 = factory shift ball thread


The shift arm tapers from about 0.800" above the damper to about 0.600" as it goes up, then necks down sharply for the 12mm thread on top.

The angle between the clamp and the lower part of the shifter is about 10 degrees.

The angle of the knee is about 35 degrees.

I don't know but Ford wouldn't have paid for it unless it made some difference.
