Default 87-91 F-150 column shifter

How yall doing

So im wondering if anyone knows anything about the rubber grommet that is on this generations column shift lever. I have an 88 f-150 aod automatic. I'm looking for the replacement part or something that i can use or make work for it. Any one have a part number or experience with the shift lever? Let me know thank you!

Which "shift lever" are you talking about? The one you pull on? I don't recall any rubber parts on it. The one at the bottom/front of the column that connects to the pushrod? That should be hard nylon - not rubber. And the column is essentially the same for all pre-'91 trucks & most other Ford/L/M products. Click this & study it:

Post pics of the parts you're talking about.

The automatic transmission shift lever is what im talking about. Number 7210 on the schematics you brought up. I dont know by looking at this if the rubber piece im talking about is #7246 or something different. If i remember correctly the rubber piece goes on the topside of the eyelet on the shift handle.

It looks like it's just a dust boot - not necessary for it to work. Is there some problem with how it shifts?

I don't think you'll find that part new anywhere, and it's not 7246. I'd look around for a simple rubber O-ring about that size.

Yeah thats kind of what i was thinking too but i would like one there just to keep stuff out. Transmission is okay (granted im waiting to make sure my TV cable is adjusted right when i get it in the shop). Honestly i have the curved shifter if you want to call it that and i want to put the early straight shifter style in, i like it better.

Any idea if this is the right part before i go and buy it?

It looks like it might be. Ask the seller for dimensions.
