Automatic Console Shifter Problem
Good morning everyone! A Pontiac newbe here. I am just starting on my 1970 GTO. The car appears to be complete, but has a few problems I wanted to correct before starting the project.
I dropped it off at a friends garage where we could do a few things to get it running before starting the parts ordering process, which of course will include ordering manuals, but before the manuals get here I will pose a problem to the forum.
One of the little problems is the automatic floor shifter. The shift detents did not actually represent what gear the transmission was in. When placed in 1st, the transmission was actually in 2nd (1st therefore is unavailable) 2nd is Drive, Drive is Neutral, etc.
We removed the console and the shifter was extremely dirty and did not appear to be attached at the front. I have looked in my OPG, and NPD parts catalogues and Year One online, and cannot find a bracket that mounts the front of the shifter to the tunnel. The shifter is only mounted at the rear. The console did not have all of the attachment brackets installed either, but I can find the parts to order to cure that problem. Can anyone tell me what bracket I need to attach the front of the shifter to the tunnel?
