Continuing while I wait fir the linkages from Bob i decided to look at why my low low range was not working. Thought low range was shot, just looks like selector pin wasn't being pushed in enough.

1985 Gt18 range selector:

Cleaned up the pin with some sandpaper, what should I put on it to keep it lubed?

Possibly some 'dry lube'?

Glad it's working again.
What did you use on the h-l shifter shaft?

Nothing yet, I am thinking a lightweight oil though instead of dry lube.  3n1 maybe.

Well, today I became an expert in taking out the shift lever! What a pain in the ass! You have to be able to twist your arm in every direction to get that thing out and to get that thing back in. I also had to put it back in multiple times because I kept getting the brackets the wrong way

But now that it is back in, & I adjusted the pen by twisting it, I now have a working high and low range!

Hmm....maybe i missed that when I looked Kenny.  The only thing that I really want to be original is the shield because I want the embossed 44" on it....I know, vain.
