Chris o matics change over

I have a 1957 chris craft constellation with twin 6 cylinder. hercules engines. It has the chris o matic or crash o matic setup to the transmission. I want to change over to manual shifter linkage. I have the handles for the helm but I need the bell cranks and all the fittings. I understand this will be used with half inch pipe. I would really appreciate if someone could take pictures of this linkage from the helm to the transmissions. I have been told by some parts dealers that they probably have it but need pictures. Thanks ! Robert

Welcome aboard. Sorry, you're about 30 years to late for pictures of our CC linkage. Hah! I haven't heard the term "Crash-o-Matic" for years. Thanks for the memory. A friend had them on his '56 and we had the manual levers on the side of the helm.

There's actually one of those in a corner of our marina storage yard, but it's been sitting there for years. "Hotel California." It's in very sad shape but I'll see if anything is left for photos.
