69 GTO back to stock shifter issues
I have searched and searched before posting but need help with this. I have a 69 GTO with a floor console shift, a th350 transmission. The former owner had a B and M shifter that wouldn't work properly and the cable was bent. I have removed it and have a factory shifter I would like to replace it with. The problem I am running into is this: 1. I have bought a new repro cable, and new correct bracket and linkage connection, but when I attempt to hook everything up the way and where I think it goes, and follow the adjustment steps, the shifter will not shift into any of the drive gears. 2. Does anyone have dimensions and measurements of where the mounting brackets for the console should be attached to the floor (no holes are there) ;3. Where the hole for the cable should be at (measurements with a reference point) I have a slight suspicion this may be the problem. The shifter shifts fine when the cable is removed from the tranny, and I can move the linkage through the gears easily when the cable is off as well... Any ideas, hints or suggestions will be appreciated. And I have to get a new cable because I bent my new one while messing with this. LOL Thanks for the help.
