72 Console Shifter Problem

Recommended Posts

72 Riviera, the console shifter will operate the transmission from Park through all the gears down to Low, however, it will not upshift or move the transmission at all or back up to Park. I have to manually move shift bracket/handle on the side of the trans to shift the trans back to park. 

I have use of a rack but by myself so I can't operate the shifter to see what is happening underneath. Everything looks connected and not loose from the cable to the linkage at the shift selector to its other end on top of the steering column. Something came disconnected as it feels normal from Park through Low but light feeling with little resistance upshifting.  ????

Perhaps one of the lobes on the return to park side is worn away - at the trannies' connection.

I'd get under and take it apart there first. With the car parked and blocked of course.

 

Was it recently serviced? How many miles? City or highway?
