    Comments about B & M Automatic Shifter, Z-Gate:

    Installed in a 1951 Ford Pickup that had been retrofitted with a 350 Chevy engine. Did this at same time I was installing racing cam, Holly carb. and edelbrock intake, bunch of chrome....... The package, including shifter, works great. Like safety feature preventing accidentally shifting into reverse when using shifter to progress through gears, GOOD PRODUCT!
