6 This driver-side angle shows the manual lever location, just forward of the low/reverse servo piston cover. In the stock OE floor shift configuration for the Mustang, the manual lever points upward and is connected to the shifter with a steel shift linkage rod. Due to the fact that the C4 cores used by Dynamic come from many varied sources (trucks, column shift, etc.), it is almost impossible to provide the correct lever for the application, thus the manual lever is cut down to allow the use of an aftermarket shifter. This is an industry-wide solution, no matter what vendor you use.
