Re: Rigging a 727 Shifter, Transmission is 1961 Aluminum case



Bear with me here as I'm trying to pull up memories from 45 years ago, but back then I had a 61 Belvedere.  Bought it with a 3 spd. manual trans. but after "using up" every available tranny in the local salvage yards I switched it to an automatic (rear brake drum no park).  I don't remember now whether I had an aluminum or cast iron automatic but I do remember having a hell of a time getting the push button shifter to work.  My fuzzy memory recalls that the mechanism on the tranny where the shift cable attached was different than it is on the aluminum tranny in my 63.  The cable attached to a separate piece that was then bolted down to the main case.  When I would bolt it down I couldn't shift it.  Finally ended up pushing it to the local Dodge dealer and had their mechanic "fix" it.  Never did find out what I was doing wrong.  
Could it be that there is a lesson here for Bob's Bombardier issues?

Hello All.
I am probably the odd ball in the group but the website is the only one where I have been able to get information on the early Poly and 727 hook-up.
I have a 1963 313 Industrial V8 which I have mated a 727 (rear Brake drum and NO park) to it. I have made all the necessary changes to the crank and TQ.
What I am doing now is rigging the shift cable.
I have it rigged so that I can move my shifter into reverse and the transmission goes into reverse but I have to screw around with the shifter handle to get it back into Neutral.
My question probably sounds stupid but ``Will the shifting become easier after the transmission is under pressure (Operating) . I am doing the rigging with the transmission only half full and not running ``
I am working on a 1963 Bombardier Snowbus
All return correspondence will be greatly appreciated.
Best Regards
