TH350 Manual linkage position (picture)

Guys,
I am changing the shifter on my '35 Chevy. I think the one that was with it was Home-made. I am adding a Locar Nostalgia shifter. So my question is..acording to the attached picture is my TH350 in Park, or in 1st gear. Also, the Locar instruction diagram shows the linkage arm in the up position as I have it, but all else shows the linkage 180 degress turned. Is either correct?

Thanks in advance for the help.

My calculated guess from what I have researched is the tranny is in Park.
What's your conclusion?

Facing the linkage side of the tranny, as in your picture, turning the linkage clockwise to the last detent, will put it in Park. So if your lever is pulled back towards the rear of the tranny as far is it will go, its in park.

Thanks Mark.

I got the linkage hooked up and it "feels" real good.

Appreciate it.

I was looking at the picture again and am wondering one thing. The "A" shaped bracket that appears to be attached to the floor pan for holding the cable, would it be safer/better to have it turned over and mounted to the trans pan? Just in case you had a hard shift or something and got some flex between the tranny and body, I'd hate to see it change gears into neutral and over rev the engine. Just a thought.

The 'A' shaped bracket you refer to is part of the shift linkage and is attached to the plates that are bolted to the trans. Nothing except a boot is attached to the floorpan. Lokar does offer a version that attaches to the floor, but I wouldn't suggest it be used. I believe that engine torque would cause problems with that unit. No cable is used. Lokar uses a threaded rod to connect the linkage.

Nice shifter (I use one also), but not designed for racing application. Very easy to go from low and/or second and shift past drive into neutral. The lock-out feature only prevents going into reverse without pressing the button on the top of the shifter.
