Default Help installing new Muncie, with factory shifter?

I'm going to install a new muncie in my 1966 nova, I have the factory shifter.
the car presently has a muncie and the factory shifter, I'm wondering if i can install the new transmission with the factory shifter installed on the transmission ,with out the handle? Will it fit in the tunnel all together? Has anyone done this?

Thanks,

I'm thinking you probably can, if you're careful, but not with the shifter installed (unless you've got the car jacked up pretty far off the ground).
Which new Muncie did you get?

I always took the shifter off to bolt it in, makes life a lot easier.

I'm installing an M22 , I would normally remove the shifter first, But I have a carpet ring above the rubber boot, the boot is screwed down to the floor with a metal ring , I would rather not have to find the holes to screw the ring and boot back down. I could dClick image for larger version

Well, that's your preference, but I'd rather look for the holes than try to manipulate it up there with the shifter on, lol, and if you mark the holes in the carpet when you take the ring off you won't have any trouble at all finding them.
