After a couple of fellow VMF'rs kick started me into actually thinking, I realized my acceleration problem is due to my shifter position.

When the shifter says it's in P it is in P.
When the shifter says it is in D1 (small dot) it is in N.
When the shifter says it is in D2 it is in D1 (2-3 gears)
When the shifter says it is in L it is in D2 (1-2-3 gears)

I can't actually get the transmission in L.

To get reverse, I have to first put in N then up to R.

I assume it needs to be adjusted, my question is how? If I adjust the linkage so that D1-D2-L works, then I can't get it into park (presumably - I haven't yet tried it!)

I'm not sure what the tranny came out of. It was supposed to be 66 Mustang. It has been rebuilt, and operates perfectly, with this exception. Is the shift patter the same for 65 and 66? How about the linkage?

TIA,
Frank

there is a bolt that connects it to the tranny lever. the way i adjusted it is to have two helpers, one that makes sure that the shifter is pointed to the reverse and one to make sure the back-up lights are on.
