Ok, update: Gear indicators on the dash are slightly off. For example, the little orange indicator is actually just left of 'N' when I'm actually in neutral, etc. I know there is an adjustment for this, but I'm guessing I should probably adjust the shift linkage first? Also, I can get the shift lever on the column far enough into park that I can get the key out and the reverse lights turn off, however the truck will still 'drift' like it's not in park. E-brake is necessary to keep it in place.
I'm beginning to think the band anchor hasn't dropped like on other's transmissions. I took it out this morning - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shifts were all good.
I checked the linkage yesterday - seemed snug and in good order. No play or obvious damage. But today I want to try disconnecting it and making sure the manual shift lever on the tranny is all the way back (in park) per the FSM adjustment directions. But I'm having a bitch of a time trying to release the shift linkage lock (the little plastic thing below the brake booster). The FSM gives no indication how to remove it and I'm starting to feel a little retarded that I can't get it off. Anyone got this little bastard off?
