Tranny Problem

I just swapped out my old tranny for a used suncoast. it was in our prulling truck so i know the suncoast is good. and now that its in. the lever has alot of play in it. when i go to put it in Drive i can move the lever for R to 1. and its still in the same gear. Also it won't shift out of 2nd. what could be the problem??
thanks
Fuzzy

Need to adjust the shift cable? There is an exact procedure to follow. I don't know it off hand but saw it in a tech article. It only takes about 10 mins to do . Hope this helps Good luck Fuzzy

Ok Fuzzy...I am going to try and get this from memory. Its been awhile though.

Crawl under the truck and look where the shift linkage attaches to the cable. You will need to take the cable off the shift linkage. It just pops off. Once you have it removed...manually put the truck into neutral. Then look on the shift cable housing (black I think) and there should be a white ring on the inside. There are small lines that run vertically (up/down) from the white part to the black part. Those are the neutral alignment lines and they need to be aligned together. Then go into the cab and put your gear selector in neutral. Then go back under the truck and put it all back together. It should be back in alignment.

I believe you are pretty close on that Dave Good memory!

It's been about 5 years since I had to do it.

Fuzzy, look at where the shift linkage is on the tranny. Get someone to wiggle the lever in the cab while you are looking. Chock you'er wheels!!

I think,it seperates where it goes from thick to thin. I remember it turned out to be sooo easy I thought it would be dificult. I think the tech artical I printed was from over there. you know on the dark side.
