I recently bought this 1971 FJ40 and have just started on getting it road worthy. The truck has been sitting for over 4 years, but at one time underwent a "restoration", I use the quotes because it was a half assed attempt at a restoration. So, I got it running, after sitting 4 plus years, it fired up relatively easy. I had to do some clutch bleeding to get a decent pedal out of it, but the clutch seems to work fine. So for the first time I take it on a road test. It shifted into reverse pretty easy, I can feel that all the linkage on the column shift is pretty worn out. After backing up the driveway I go to shift into 1st. I can only get it into one forward gear, 2nd gear I think judging by the lug on the engine. So I break out my repair manual and slide under the truck, unfortunatly the manual has nothing on the column shifter. I plan on going to a floor shift conversion as soon as possible. But for now I'm stuck with this column shifter. So my question is what adjustments can I make? Why can't I hit 1st or 3rd. I'm new to Cruisers, this is my very first one & I've never even looked under a Cruiser hood until last week. I tried to do a search, thinking that this might already have a topic, but I was unable to find one. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
