I had the third version installed in the forward position and it leaked like a mofo! Got in touch with APT and they admitted there was a problem and sent me the new version IV (they were really good about it even tho I live in Australia) I have now installed the new one (this time in the rear position) Drove for around an hour and had zero leak. I did take photo's to show what the new seal looks like but I lost my phone an easy way to tell is that the new seal is a more square/rectangular shape and it covers the shoulder on the ball, where the other round seal did not. Hope that helps, can't do much more without the pics

Did you see the pictures I posted back in post 16? Here is a closeup reposted of what I believed to be #3's underbelly. Was yours different from this?

ok, reviving a 3 year old thread here. After 6100 miles my T56 magnum shifter is leaking (mounted in the rear position) so I need to fix this.

1- Are the two aforementioned shifters my only option, or has something else come along over the past few years?

2- Is there a consensus on which is the better shifter- the WL or the Hurst? I really don't care about individual spring tuning adjustment, I just want a shifter that works well and doesn't leak.

Thanks!

Hey i'm in the same boat although using the front shifter position. Three different gasket replacements and all failed with 50 miles. Unfortunately it forces me to redo my tunnel to gain access and replace the entire shifter. So any one with success on the T56 magnum forward position i'm all ears.....

Any update on this? Any more feedback from those running this shifter? Does the shifts feel a lot shorter?
