    I am doing a 350 conversion in my 71 FJ40 and keeping the original 3 spd drive train for now until I can raise more funds. My question is, While I had the tranny removed it shifted freely and easily but once installed it freezes up! what is happening?
    thanks

    sounds to me like when you stabbed the shifter back in you missed the right spot.i did the same thing.
    just pull the shifter out and use a flathead to jockey the thing back to nuetral and restab.
