Noisy shifter

So I installed a new mcleod shifter and its noisy. Sounds like a bolt or knob is loose but its not. When I touch the shifter the noise goes away. I am thinking its the springs in the unit. Anyone have a problem like this

Could be the knob. Are you using the stock one? Did you use a little RTV in it if you did?

I put a piece of cork gasket between the handle and the shifter (gmm). Worked great.

Another thing I did with my GMM was used the black boot and used a hose clamp around the base to secure it. I'm sure that damps out any stray vibration and keeps dirt out too. The GMM has a round base that it works on though. Not sure if the Qwik Stick is the same.

It wouldn't be as slick as mine but you may still be able to put one on there. Definitely needs a clamp around the base to try though
