Moses, i know we covered this in the other post, at least a little bit, but i figured it might be better to start a whole new post about it. We have finally got around to messing with the nightmare (AKA my step-dads F-150). Because it has sat for 3 years, we changed all the fuel and brake lines, finally changed the transmission and flexplate, as well as fixed some other minor issues with it. Today, in trying to start it, i noticed that it will only start in neutral, but the indicator actually points to drive, and wont start in park. I unhooked the shift cable from the transmission, and then made sure it was in park, by moving the shift lever on the transmission manually, and it started without an issue, so, my question is, how do you adjust the shift linkage. I found the steps online, but, i dont seem to see any kind of clip in the cable at the transmission end, although i do see what appear to be teeth on the plastic part of the cable, so, what am i missing? The pics i found didnt seem to help much either, but, i cant really tell because the pics i did find arent of the best quality. Last question, how important is the whole, having a 3 pound weight hanging from the shifter? As always, thank you for your advice and help.
