49 Olds standard transmission column shift issues
Posted 06 August 2005 - 12:27 AM
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!

The earliest shop manual I have is 1954, and it doesn't go into much detail in that area either. Shows how to get the shift lever out and remove the shift tube from the column mast jacket, and a little bit down at the lower end. DK how much it would help you but it you PM me with a street address I'll xerox what I have for you.

Upon closer examination, it looks like there is supposed to be a piece that screws onto the internal shift tube that is missing. Also, the column itself has some slots/stops on the end that the missing piece probably slips into for locating the correct gear.
