I have a '72 W30 with the Hurst dual gate shifter and the cable is shot. Any tips on replacing it? I ordered a new one from Supercars unlimited. Do I have to replace from underneath the car?

Welcome to the boards. I also have a 72 W30 with the dual gate shifter. Fortunately, my works and I haven't had to dismantle it. IfI can help with reference pictures or anything, let me know. I couldn't find much information in the chassis service manual, but doesn't seem to be directly what you are looking for.

Thanks for the info! After some research it looks pretty straightforward. I found a HURST scematic. My older brother has been a wrench since 1984 he said we can replace it in about a half hour.

Yup, also one of the Canadian 128 W30s shipped up north. Gotta love the Canadian documentation.

Is yours numbers matching? My block isn't but It still has the W-30 intake Ga Heads and the W exhaust manifolds.
