Shifter cable
« on: May 07, 2015, 12:29:12 PM »

Hey I have a 65 Coronet 440 with the original engine (318) and 727 tranny I have a shift slippage and think it might be from shifter cable. Anyone know what the funky looking box inside the engine compartment that the shifter cable hooks to is?

The 65 had a column shift.  It was the first year after push buttons.  The trans was the first year with a drive shaft slip yoke.  From 1963 to 1965 the trans required 2 cables.  One went to the shift mech in the valve body and the other went to the parking pawl.

Please describe the slippage you are talking about.  When was the trans last serviced and when were the bands last adjusted?

Sometimes it will not go into gear the tranny was rebuilt and resealed 500 miles ago.

The cable could be going bad, or he didn't adjust it right.  The best way to adjust is with the pan off.  Did this just start?  Or is it since the trans was rebuilt.
The adjustment is on the trans

I suspect the shifter is out of adjustment.  Take it back to him.  Before that though, I think we have instructions in the help section on how to adjust it.
