Yes, especially since they want to ban semi auto rifles. Maybe after a few get eaten, they will think otherwise.

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

if I'm seeing it right it looks jammed...take a big screwdriver and get all 3 shifters lined up...you'll have to pry em into place...

Man I can't even tell what you're talking about from that picture I need to find some normal pictures along and go back to look at that thread.

What this happened because there was not oil in it?

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

if you look down in the shifter hole you'll see 3 notched shift levers...they should all be lined up...here's a pic of a clean one so you can see em better...but this pic is in gear...

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

What does the bottom of your shifter look like? Please post a pic. Your shifter has a small button on the bottom that goes in those slots. All the slots need to be aligned to be in neutral. The "Button" Should move freely between 3 aligned slots when in neutral if I remember right. Start with aligning that one on the right with the one in the middle.

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

Yeah when I initially pull the shifter out, I thought about that tab. I was not sure if I was hopeful that it was broken off so if he needs a fix or what. But it appears to be there.

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

How hard was it to remove the shifter? It could have just come loose and raised up enough to come out of the slots. Could just need some work to the shifter.

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

For some reason is telling me the security token will not let me upload a picture of the shifter. It has the little T on the end that I see on new shifter. Shifter came right out once I took off the lock ring with channel locks.

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

Sound like it could be ok. Is the piece that goes into the slots at the end loose?

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

Now it seems fine looks like it's Walden Honor made part of the rod itself if memory serves correct. I'm just trying to figure out how I'm going to crawl up underneath there with enough light and enough space for a screwdriver and my face to see down inside there to line up those shifting rails

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

So when I get these shift rails all aligned my transmission will go back to shifting normally?

This is a great chance to swap in an actual M20 like I did when my sm465 went out. The sm sucks anyways.

Talking Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

After many attempts to try and use my phone to take video with the flash on so i could see, i got those things aligned an am running again!

Sorry for the delays between post trying to coordinate between jobs and 4H and everything else. I now need a chiropractor appointment for crawling up underneath there at the same time.

My question is why does it do that? How does he jump out like that?

Re: 1972 C10 2wd M20 wont go into gear

My guess is wear on the shifter. It is held in by spring loaded force. We know how to fix your problem because we have been there and done that. The first time I pulled a SM420 I got 7 stitches. A good chiropractor is nice to have. Push down real hard on your shifter in neutral and see if it moves down any . This "play" can be the issue. You may have a worn out ball and socket on the pivot of your shifter. Good to hear you did not have to pull it! Happy motoring!
