<VV> Shifter problem
Wed, 19 May 2004 19:21:57 +0000
I have a early 63 3 speed Corvan (long convoluted shifter). The problem is when I am working on it and starting it from the rear, it falls into 1st gear. After chasing it down the road once or twice, I now work on it with the rear wheels in the air. What is causing it to fall into gear?
Also it is very difficult shifting into second gear. Is this a problem with the transmission or in the shifter/bushings. What parts do I need to order.
If this is a problem inside the transmission, I do have a 4 speed tranny from a van. How much work is involved in the swap from an early van 3 sp to and early van 4 sp? anyone who has "been there done that" feel free to pipe up and give your opinion.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
63 Mystery Machine hopefully on the road soon.
