Ford Shift Lever

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by V8guy, Jun 1, 2012.

  1. On the 61 to 66 Tbirds and could be on other models of the same years, the shift lever on the column shift automatics, a notch wears in the shift lever from the dentent plate in the column. The dentent plate is made of harder steel than the lever.

    This can cause the transmission to slip from park into reverse, not a big problem with the engine off, but if it is running unattended could be serious issues.

    The roll pin needs to be removed from the lever and column, remove the lever and weld the notch closed. After welding the lever needs to be filed back to its original shape. Pictures below are before and after. The after picture has the rubber boot reinstalled
