Fabricating something isn't an issue.... It's having to redesign something that I already made perfect, because of lack of replacement parts.
I called the parts store back and asked for a 77 tbird shift cable, which the had a listing for and could order. Are these body style rancheros the same as a tbird of same year, or are they different enough to not be the same.
I appreciate your input. I posted in the 87-96 truck forum also, I wasn't sure how much exposure this small subforum got.
Now to keep searching for this elusive shift cable now that I have an official part number.
Sorry about that. I did say that I could get a tbird one, but when I actually called to order it they said no. With the ford part number, the same people could actually get one if I prepay. So far o'reilly says they can for $100, but advance says no and Carquest says $175. I gotta call napa and autozone now just in case they are cheaper. I have never bought from o'reilly so I'm checking other options before I do it.
