Red face Shift indicatoron a 66' econoline?

My shift indicator broke off and I looked up what it looks. P R N D D D... and I think LD, right? Please correct me if it's wrong, so, which one do I use and what are the rest for? Though I know the one way to the right is for Low 1st, if that is even correct. I'm just learning about my truck and mechanics and so far the only thing I haven't fixed myself is the transmission and I certainly don't want to go that path again. It was very costly, at least to me, I'm a single dad and every penny counts. God bless all econoline 66' and Ford owners

I think you have too many "D"s.

It should be P R N (small dot) (larger green dot) L

The normal drive position is the green dot next to the L. (second position from the bottom) This position starts in first, goes to second, then to third.

If you are using the little dot next to the N, it skips first and starts in second and goes to third. This is good in snow and sand.

Driving in L keeps it in first gear.

Vic La Fountaine (vlafountaine -at- socal.rr.com) in CA sells a reproduction of the clear plastic indicator. (as well as lots of other Econo parts)

Exclamation I have indicated the indicator!

Hey man, Thanks! That really helped a lot. All the knowledge that I am absorbing in the mechanical world is much appreciated. When I become as wise as all the Ford owners, I too will pass it on to whom ever disires such awesome intellect. Thanks again
