Cool

Here goes some ideas from the attic. The old column shifters were well known to wear out and jam, look in front of the firewall and use a bar or tire iron to wiggle the forks to see if it'll come loose. Easiest repair is a floor shift conversion. If that is working good take a 12" cresent wrench and crawl under the truck and try shift the tranny with the shift arms back to neutral, this can be caused by worn shift forks, (internal) or out of adjustment linkage from the column shift. Good luck.
