I have replaced the bushings and shifter and cable in my 65 mustang automatic, but the button on the shifter handle does not compress the cable up far enough to clear the park detent. I think there is a way to adjust the cable to match the detent height better, but when I turn the small nut at the bottom of the shifter it only seems to bind the cable, not adjust it up or down. Am I doing this right? What should I expect to happen?
perhaps this article done by mustang man mark will help..please click through all the images and then the whole story.. each image has some text..http://www.mustangmonthly.com/projectbuild/mump_0101_automatic_shifter_rebuild/photo_11.html
Thank you very much. I am very new to this but am enjoying learning on my dream car.
