I'm a professional mechanical engineer, but no mechanic. I can guess a lot of things from the theory I've studied, but a lot of little details, like you said, may be missing from my background.
Anyway, I've purchased this old car to teach my two sons a little bit of mechanic. And also to avoid lending them my two new cars. There are some things which I will not be able to do, so I'll leave that to the real mechanics.
This transmission range switch might be something for the real professional mechanic. I'll see when I look at the manual. Right now I'm still into teaching some body job to my two sons to fix the rust patches before winter time arrives. As soon as I've kicked their ass for long enough for them to get on with it, then I'll register to and take a look if it is within my reach.
Thanks for your counsel, it's appreciated.
