And finally, is there any easy fix to get 3 gears ona column shift with only 2 gears? gear markers are in dash not on column. thank you in advance.
The year model isn't important for the TH350 Trans. There're different lengths of Tailhousings/Outputshafts, 6", 9" & 12". Older trucks 72 back came with 6" Tail, 73 up 9". A Long Shaft/Tail Glide and Short Shaft/Tail TH350 are basically the same length. http://www.tciauto.com/Products/TechInfo/trans_dims.asp
I'm not sure about correcting the Column/Dash from 2 to 3-speed indicator. ShiftWorks may have something available. http://www.shiftworks.com/index.html
