Hi, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. Get the dimensions off of the lower part of the boot and the shifter shaft size and you can find a universal one at most truck part stores or on the web. Let me know

I cannot use this as there is no means of attaching the bottom screw holes because the trans housing is solid cast steel and I don't want to drill holes into the housing. So no I can't use this. thank you.

Can you take a picture of the shifter? I bet you can use one for a john deere tractor.
