View Full Version : Linkage needed.

04-22-2007, 08:58 PM
I am in need of the linkage that goes from the steering column to the Automatic transmission, the inserts/bushings are needed as well. Ive tried a couple of places and no one seems to save this stuff.[B)] You can contact me off forum. Thanks![8D]

Edit: Sorry I knew it was an Automatic I figured everyone else knew as well...[:I]

I have a 62 Lark parts car with automatic don't know if the bushings are there. Don't know if this info helps. Let me know.

Don't know if your transmissionis automatic or not, but if automatic and you can't find the parts you need, you may want to try www.lokar.com they are a Hot Rod parts mfg. but they carry an automatic cable shift linkage. I am converting my Chamnp Pickup to a 700R4 transmission and their linkage seems to work perfectly. Don't know if this helps, but...

A shift rod (link) from a 59-60-81 Lark type (W/auto trans) will fit - V8 & 6 used the same. Part# 1547593 '62-3-4 carry a different part number.

There's NO bushing at the upper end - only a washer and a cotter pin. At the lower end, there's a swivel part #1541533:D
