it is a "press fit" kinda deal. It's funny yours won't come off. both PSD's i've had after a while will just slip right off.

If it's like my 97 it's splined and not threaded. Cute little ford trick. Knob needs to come straight off, not unthreaded. Prolly glued on too.

If the hurst has threads then it won't work. Ya have to get one for a splined shifter rod. I don't know if they make both types or not. If your not dead set on the t-handle there are other companys that make knobs for your application. One is Welcome to www.flameball.com And i'm sure there is more.

If you going to put on an aftermarket knob, you have to use like aflathead screw driver and a hammer. Just put the screwdriver at the base, pointing up, and tap it a few times, the stock knob should pop off.

As for the aftermarket knob, you need one that uses setscrews to fit. Any knob that screws on will not work.
