Re: Paralyzed Push Buttons



Folks, can we change the title of this thread to something more related to whatever is being discussed?  I foolishly keep opening messages expecting to find something related to push-button shifters like I have in my '62 - 65 mopars because the thread title is "Paralysed Push Buttons.  Now it's about "where did you get your windshield", "tell me more about your windshield" and "I don't like the new shift controls".  Sorry is this makes me seem like a crochety old fart, but I guess I AM a crochety old fart.  Thanks...

I got it several years ago and had a hard time finding one.  Since then someone has started re-popping them as I have seen them on Ebay.  The 62 & 63 were the same, 64's were different because of the different cowl design.  I could only find two at the time, one clear, in Tenn. and one tinted, in Minneapolis.  I bought the tinted one.
When I got mine it cost me $300 + $100 shipping and $100 to have it installed by Kryger glass in Omaha with no guarantee if they broke it since they did not provide it.

Even with the finicky adjustment you gotta love these pushbuttons.  I took my 63 to a glass shop to have a new windshield installed I was going to leave it for the day.  I pulled it in to the service bay and asked if anyone new how to operate a pushbutton transmission so they could move it when they were done.  None of the guys working there were more than 35 - 40 years old and they all just kind of looked at each other.  So I started to explain and the mgr. said "that's OK we'll just leave it here till you come back".  Loved it.

I'm looking for opinions.
I got my Fury about a year ago and it came to me in desperate need of a transmission rebuild. (727 ) . Getting it rebuilt was one of my first efforts. I had it done by a local shop who seemed fairly competent and honest. Most of the issues they had were from just not being familiar with the old torqueflite, but they managed. 
The car is a very original, 383 4bbl, all stock. I discovered early on that someone had Jimmied up the carb (original AFB)  so the 4 barrel wouldn't open. I gently tried to get all that back in shape, and I also found that the throttle cable was moved to not allow Wide Open Throttle. SO I fixed that.Now, when I push the loud pedal she really squirts!! Now.... for the push buttons. Only Reverse, Neutral and Drive work. I have been under the car and played with the adjustment on the cable. I actually got it where nothing would work. We went in small increments all the way from end to end settling back where we started (about mid way). Still no function from first or second button. They will depress part way and eject whatever button is pushed in, but won't push in all the way or stay in. I have not pulled the cable all the way out of the case yet as I don't have a lift, but it seems to be jamming at the push button mechanism. Maybe another attempt to keep someone from Hot Rodding like the carb and throttle cable?? Any suggestions? It may be a while before I can try any fixes, I'm a big old guy and can't get under the dash without pulling the seat, so I would like a plan first. Thanks in advance for your input.
