My 49 Olds project car has the manual 3 speed column shift. However, no amount of manipulating the shift lever will take the transmission to neutral. I finally pulled the steering wheel and it sure looks like there are some parts missing. The linkages at the bottom of the steering column to the transmission are intact, but they don't move when the shift lever is moved.
I have the both the Shop Manual and the Chassis Parts book for 1949, but neither have an explanation or even a picture of the upper steering column shift linkage parts. I thought that was rather odd.
Does anyone have a diagram of this area with part numbers they could send me? Is there some other book or manual that would better explain this? Were these parts shared with other GM cars with standard transmissions as well?
I am appreciative of any and all replies!
