I just bought a 67 f100 with a 3 speed on the column and it's having trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd. I understand this is a common problem, but I'm new to this kind of thing, so can someone tell me how to fix the problem?
Thanks for the help guys. I have been doing what you said John with sliding the shifter right up the steering wheel and letting it "pop" out of first before putting in second, but last night I was going up a hill and trying to shift into second and I guess I was in a hurry and the shifter was just loose between gears and the truck was still in first. I had to stop the truck and get under it to get the shifter loose. I guess I'm wondering if there's a rebuild I need to do or is this just part of the column shift. Thanks again!
