Had transmission rebuilt 10 years ago, it quit going into gear ..i parked it.. N just started getting it redi to be back on road..Its REALLY tuff going into gear n finding DETENT, ive lubed the linkage like it was going into space, n im finding it EASIER, albeit NO WHERE NEAR as BUTTERY as original transmission linkage was.. im a NEWB, but looking at the linkage that bolts to inlet, it can SQUIRM, behind the TV linkage, im taking this to be OK? Also pulled the console @ shifter n soaked it down too. Thanks in advance! I CAN get all the gears, but FEELING detent is still shooting in dark sorta..
