shifter cable

Howdy all... I just got my TH400 tranny rebuilt but I need a new shifter cable.
How hard is it to replace the cable?
I found one for my '67 in performance years but it says "without grommet"
what are they talking about and do I need this 'grommet'?
thanks as always

Topkat, I believe the grommet they are talking about is the one where the cable goes through the floor/tunnel. If you have one already, not need to replace it. If you don't, I recommend you get one. Matt

Try Shiftworks.com they sell a replacement cable that unlike most things is better than the original equipment one. It's thicker yet more flexible to avoid kinking.

Cool, thanks guys. But how hard is it to get to the shifter end? Is this something I can do slithered under the car?
thanks as always!

Yes sir. As I recall, you have to remove a small bracket and then unhook the cable.
