Pulled the nut and removed the kickdown arm easy enough. Removed the neutral safety switch two cap screws.
Without beating on or prying the shift arm does not want to move or even feel free. I have a suspicion this is a open the transmission kind of fix to change it to a lower swing column shift transmission, correct?
P.s. Wish I'd known this before setting the engine and transmission in place.
Looking for the right '57 Ranchero for a "keeper" this time.
