Column shift help needed
I need an extra low gear select on the factory 78 column. I'm converting to a 4L80E and already made the linkage, all the detents are identical to stock other than needing 1 notch lower for 1st gear.. I notched the tube where the shift lever comes out of the column but there's something internal keeping it from rotating any further than the factor 1st gear, which is now 2nd gear for me.
I know some of you have had yours apart to rebuild or whatever, and would appreciate any knowledge you can send my way.
Thanks in advance!
