Re: B&M Shifter
The snap type ball connection is there. The B&M shifter utilizes it for their shifter assembly. If you look at the very end of the cable from the B&M shifter at the transmission you will see where it connects the the shift arm on the transmission. It connects to it via the ball stud. If you remove the B&M shifter and cable assembly, you simply snap the factory cable back onto the shift arm with a pair of pliers. Then reinstall the shifter on the column. You may have to do some rewiring if the PO relocated the overdrive switch to work with the floor shifter.
