My drag truck has a Hurst Quarter Stick in it. It's run a 727 3-speed trans. Problem my partner and I are having is the very often you will shift from first and go straight into third gear. Now I've seen online that they sell one for a forward pattern and one for a reverse pattern.

On the one I have, you have to grasp the lever to pull down from first to second, then second to third no lever. What happens is, if you don't grasp it very hard, it will go straight into third.

I think it should be the other way around. Could it be that we have the forward pattern instead?

I bought the truck with the shifter in it already.

Shift away from neutral

That is what is referred to as reverse pattern. You should pull the handle for 1-2 and the lever/handle for 2-3.

Been trying to find a place where I can at least find a part number for the correct detent but can't find it!

It is a big deal when you lose a $2000.00 race because you lost a tenth caused by shifting from first to third :(

Not giving crap or anything like that bud :) just not fun losing with something that can be fixed with the correct part... btw, I bought the truck with that setup... you'd think he would have ordered the right shifter huh? Oh well.
