'71 CHEVY C10- Manual 3 speed column shifter problems
OK so here's whats up. I have a 1971 Chevy pickup with a manual column shifter (3 speed) and I was having problems with my shift linkage getting bound up and I had a ton of play in my shifter. I replaced all of my bushings on the linkage up top and down at the transmission. I also took the entire steering column out and apart and cleaned up everything I could. I put it all together and put back in the truck. I had fixed the original problem but now I have play in the steering wheel area of the column. Like when I go to shift and pull the shifter towards me, I can pull it too far and I get movement in the steering wheel. Now I dont know if I just didnt get it put together right (because the blinker section of the column seems to be turned more counter clockwise and has some play) or if I have a part missing or what. Im just not sure how to find out how to fix it. Didnt know if anyone knows these shifters inside and out or if someone has had this problem before. Any advice would help. Thanks.
