Does anyone have any good pics of the Hydramatic linkage? I'm trying to adjust the linkage per the shop manual. I have found that my manual rod is maxed out on adjustment which will not allow me to adjust it correctly. I suspect the manual lever is bent but I don't want to experiment with bending it until I know for sure what it should look like. The figures in the shop manual don't really help me determine what the lever should look like. Here's a pic of mine. The transmission is in park in the pic.
The lever is up side down in the bracket. Reposition the tab 180 deg and install it into the lever.
Yep. You are correct. I eventually figured that out. It's all good now. This started out as a NSS adjustment project. My reverse lights stayed on in Low too. After I adjusted the linkage I could then adjust the NSS. Reverse lights are good now but the NSS still leaks vacuum going from Dr to N. It's fine going from P->N->Dr, there is no vacuum leak but not so going the other direction. From Dr to N is leaks vacuum then going into P holds vacuum again.
