  • Steering: 3 speed shift levers

    1962 Lark wagon. I have installed a T5 transmission in the wagon and am no longer using the column shifter. I removed the split pin from the shifter handle but cannot release it from the steering column. Is there something else that holds it in place or do I just have to apply greater pressure?
    Thanks

    Put it in Neutral, push the Lever DOWN (Toward the dash, and base of the Column) and give it a GOOD Pull!

    That SHOULD lift the flat Cog UP, out of the Shift Tube and leave only the Rubber Grommet holding it.

      There is a tooth on the lever that is probably hanging up. when it is in neutral that tooth is engaged in the 2-3 shift tube. Pull the lever toward the steering wheel then pull out at the same time.
      Pushing it will do nothing to free it up.

        Got it out with a little effort. That rubber grommet has great holding power.
