Datsun Roadster 68 - 70 Vinyl shift boot with retaining ring . Instructions for ring assembly at Part# 1780

Datsun Roadster 68 - 70 1600 & 2000 Vinyl shift boot & retaining ring.

Fits 1967.5, 1968, 1969 1970.
INSTRUCTIONS: The assembly is what Nissan came up with. The vinyl boot is inserted into the shift plate hole from the bottom. The vinyl boot is tapered and "cone shaped" and as the vinyl boot is inserted into the hole the diameter of the cone increases. Newest version of our vinyl shift boot is marked inside the boot for ease of assembly. Use the outer dash lines for the fold point on 68 - 70 5 speed shift plates and use the inner dash lines for the fold point on 68 - 70 1600 4 speed shift plates. The ring mounts on the inside of the vinyl with the toothed portion being bent around the flange of the shift plate to hold it into place.(SEE MAIN PHOTO)

 2nd PHOTO: Shift plate shown for reference attachment only. Shift plate not included. The smaller boot is the original Nissan part shown with our new boot which fits better.
