I have a 84 Chevy Scottsdale 4x4 with an automatic trans. My problem that I'm having is that the shift lever handle in the column doesn't shift to first gear but does go into all other gears I select. It's seems like something in the column is blocking it and won't allow it to engage. I have checked the equalizer at the trans and it does rotate into first gear. The entire linkage is not binding either. The Haynes repair manual shows you can do a shift tube adjustment which the book isn't being clear enough. Is this adjustment even practical on this style of column or is replacement the solution? Is there an exploded view of this column?
have the same problem?
