Transmission shift lever

My shift lever has a lot of play in it. I found that the lever on the shaft which enters the transmission is the problem. The picture in the manual (fig 10A-38) shows the shaft and lever as one assembly. My lever moves (rotates some) on the shaft and has been welded at some point which is not holding now.Anybody had any experience with this problem? My question is can I pull this shaft after dropping the pan and have it welded or is there more to it than I see?Thanks for any help as I tried…See More

I had to swap Cadillacs today to get the 1964 Cadillac Parts car on the Car Hauler to finish up, however, there was a 1963 Parts car that had to be removed first and needed to have the 63 end up where the 64 had been parked. I ended up chaining the 64 to the car hauler to be able to…
