I have an issue with my 2 speeds Powerglide mounted on my GTO 65;
first of all, when the stick is in "drive" position, it's like in "neutral", nothing happens;
I have to pull down until "low" position but it seems I"m actually in "drive" position;
also, when I take speed, I don't hear neither feel the "clonk" noise for knowing I'm on second gear;
so,in others words, I can drive perfectly in "low" psition, but being actually in "drive" mode, and second gear;
"rear" is fine;
any comment will be welcome!
:surprise:

A tiny bit of help...

It will probably be easier to research this problem if you know that the two-speed transmission in early model GTOs is not a Powerglide, it's a Super Turbine 300.

It's a completely different unit than the Chevrolet Powerglide unit.

Hope this helps.

I was told it's a Powerglide but anyway, the thing is that the shift lever located on the floor console is loose between "Rear" and "Low" positions;
but I can manage to drive "normally" in "Low" position;

yeah, I got this manual and I'm working on the adjustment;
I noticed that the rod was wobling (too loose)
so I tighten the backlash but now the "drive" is fine but in "park" position I am like in neutral, not clutched!
maybe I went too far in my adjustment and I need to go back!

This is a very frustrating job, you have my best wishes. I am lucky that the console cable to trans works OK on mine but for how long? Hopefully it will work out for you soon.
