Name That Part

Post by ricecube384 on Fri Aug 15, 2014 1:06 pm

Hello!

I've have a little play in the shifter specifically getting into 1st and Reverse and sometimes it can stick in gear when parked. The guy i bought the van from thinks the culprit is the part in the pic hose clamped to the steering column. Wish i took a pic of the other side, but it is missing a chunk and possibly not allowing the shifter to align properly. I want to order the part, but dont know what the thing is called. Any help and or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Other stuff going wrong causes that part to break,,,,,,,,,make sure the levers are adjusted and the bushings on the both levers and on the transmission are good,,,,,,,,that shift lever needs to come out 1st if you want to take that part off.....

Resurrecting an old post here. Anyone know where I can get a upper mast support? Turns out that hose clamp was holding the thing together when trying to resolve the shifting issues.

As far I know, not reproduced, have to keep asking around for a parts van donor, many have converted to auto trannies and save/sell the left over shifter parts, put out a plea here and at VCVC, someone will have one, I have seen this part requested and fufilled before by others....

Sorry I haven't seen one of those around. Should be some as so many convert to automatics. Heard about them braking so I put a garden hose gasket up in the top. Makes it less clunky and I hope less likely to break. Also, first, I rebuilt all the linkages with factory rubber bushings and plenty of white lithium grease. Shifts so nice I now prefer Three on the Tree (Where it Should Be) over floor shifters. Kind of amazing really when one considers the linkages are 5 or 6 feet long. So, in other words, I'd fix up the rest of the linkage assembly while trying to find that part. Good luck!

Mine has a hose clamp holding the mast support together but it is an automatic. My question is are the first and second gen mast supports interchangeable?

I guess I will just go ahead and buy it. If it doesn't work I'm sure someone will need it eventually.

So apparently a 2nd Gen doesn't have the same upper mast support.

Is the upper mast support made with pot metal? And if it is does it have zinc in it?
