the reverse lock is ford propietary. As far as I know only the B&M Short throw shifter will retain it's compatiblity. Do note however that the revers lock is not needed for normal operation, however now you can slide it in reverse without pulling the lock BUT the transmission will not allow you to throw it in reverse (without a lot of force) if you are going to fast anyhow.
thanks but i need ti know if there is any tricks to removing the standard 200 mtx knob. is there anything to worry about when taking it off to avoid damaging the reverse lock. i purchased the richbrook off of kkm that preserves the lock and i want to be careful.
Yea, the reverse lock out is nothing more than a shaft of plastic that sticks out on one corner so the stick will not move, it's really nothing to worry about. Just unscrew the knob and lift up, pull the leather cover off and you will see what we are talking about.
