Somehow I broke the spring on the bottom of the shift lever. Anyone have any experience with procuring a replacement spring? I haven't messed with it yet; I just broke it and had to walk away.

Thanks

There is a shift lever spring on Ebay right now.    It's very similar to, I think, as the one for my '37 Pontiac 6, at least the end of the shift lever looks identical to mine.   You may have to open up the end cap to a round hole but that wouldn't be too hard to do.   You could always ask the seller for the springs i.d. and length to be sure it would work.    Just a thought.

Well, my transmission terminology is lacking but the sliding plates that the lever moves do not stay in place and in my case when you lift the lever back of the top of the trans to see what the heck is wrong, a chunk of spring falls into the bottom of the trans.

 

Thanks kookie, that looks just right. Too bad I already bought a 6pack minimum order from a spring supplier. Hah. Jokes on me again.
