Transmission was changed from a manual to an automatic. Having trouble mounting shifter

by Pete Alfinito
(New Jersey)


I bought a barn find 1969 corvette. The original owner changed the manual transmission to an automatic. He had the shifter held in with two wood screws. I bought a new retainer plate and seal from pacifica corvette. The original hole is too small. Any suggestions as to how I should mount the shifter plate. I know it needs to be exact, else the console will not fit. Is there any kind on template that I can use?
