Another poster said his noise was from an aftermarket shift knob. Will
re-install the original shift knob (came with the car) and let you know.
Wonder if Teflon tape on the shift lever to knob threads would make any
difference if the noise is from the aftermarket knob ??

One other point: rattling and vibration in the shifter can also be
caused by a gear shift knob that has it's threaded portion loose in the
shifter. Most of the AMCO shifters I tried were loose between the
threaded protion and the wooden ball shifter. Rubber threaded shifters
seem to eliminate this prob.
