my '73 Mexican Mach 1 shifter is shot. its a Hurst 4 speed top loader. basically the shims and other internals are worn-out to the point that the shims are actually falling out of position and binding up when I reach for reverse. I could buy a rebuild kit and attempt to rebuild it myself, or I could buy a whole new shifter with linkages and install kit. apart from the cost differences, is there any good reason to rebuild what may be the original shifter?
