I used Ford Racing PN M-7213-N. It has a 3/8-16 thread on it, so I had to drill and tap it for M12-1.25. I also ground down a nut halfway to .600" diameter to act as the lock nut that comes with the knob. I wouldn't recommend doing all of this if all you want is the cue ball, but I wanted the Ford Racing logo. I used a 1/2" shaft collar, and a zip tie to keep the boot in place.
If you are going to use this knob, chuck a 5/16 drill bit into a drill press. Drop the bit down into the thread of the knob. Using non marring jaws clamp the knob to your work surface. This will locate the hole inline with the drill. Remove the drill bit, and replace with a 27/64" or 10.8mm drill. Drill the hole out, then tap the hole. I found that applying slight down force as I turned the tap to give the best results. Be careful or you'll strip the threads out.

Any of you guys that have swapped to a new knob, have the factory leather knob sitting around collecting dust? I just want to upgrade to the leather knob from the plastic one in my SE.

|multiplexer||I dig it, but how did you attach the boot to the knob?|

thread size is 10 x 1.25. Tap it to 12 x 1.25 and you would be good to go

|I_go_for_Gs||I have been looking at Home Dip and Lowes for a weighted silicone to squeeze into the void of the knob. All the products available do not weigh much. Maybe use lead ball bearings and then finish off with a layer of silicone to hold the bearings in place.hmmmm.|
