    Need A Machine Shop

    I'm looking for a shop that can either re-machine a thread from 1.5 to 1.25 or that could mill a new shift knob adapter for cheap. Any suggestions?

    At this point I need a custom adapter made anyway. So any shop with reasonable rates? Side question has anyone else gotten a Kartboy short shifter with a 12x1.5 thread on it?

    Weird. I thought all Subaru's were 1.25 and I thought Tom (Kartboy) only made Subaru (minus the FRS) parts.

    They are, apparently some of the older ones were 1.5 thread which on a Delrin knob is fine but my new shift knob is metal and worked on my stock lever but not the Kartboy. I may just hit up RallySportDirect for a swap out.

    helicoil for sure... you can tap threads for sure, but in the same hole and same diameter, that's really not an option. helicoil would be your best bet.
