    S197 shift knob on SN95

    To use a S197 shift knob on a SN95 is it as simple as buying an shift knob adapter? I know the SN95 uses a 12mm x 1.75 thread and the S197 is 12mm x 1.25, so would you buy a 1.25 to 1.75 adapter?

    I suppose if you get an adapter for the thread pitch and devise a way to attach it to the S197 shift knob, I don't see why it wouldn't work. This is assuming that the diameter of the rod the knob screws on to is the same for both S95 and S197 - which I would guess to be 12mm for both.

    Just out of curiosity, why do this? I think it might be tough to get the adapter right *and* fit in the knob. There are about a billion knobs out there for the SN95 - none you like? (In fact, I don't see how this would work - if you use a sleeve for the shift rod, it will increase the diameter that the knob has to fit on; the only way I can see how this would work is to use a nut or sleeve from an SN95 knob and replace the one in the S197 with it...without breaking the S197 knob.)

    Roush actually sold a bunch of S197 knobs out of their cars. They would cut the bottom sleeve off the stock knob (the boot attaches to the knob on S197) because that is where the threads are, then Re-tap the new hole to the correct size. I have one like that and it worked great!

    I like using OEM/Tuner parts whenever possible, and there's a whole lot more Saleen/Roush shift knobs for S197's vs SN95's.

    Yep that's it. Mine is mounted on my wall now (made coat racks with shift knobs) so it won't have the same effect

    Yep, they did it because obviously the Roush cars got a Roush ball shifter, so they had so many of these they didn't know what to do with them.

    That's pretty cool, as far as Roush knobs go, finding one with the with the roush logo as the reverse part of the pattern would be awesome. Like so
