Re: NP 205 won\'t go into low range
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe an auto/205 combo was origionally put in anything '72. So, it's likely it was swapped in. Pointing the cause of the problem to the shifter/linkage. The 205's linkage doesn't have any adjustments, or much else for that matter to go wrong. Check to make sure the lever isn't hitting the floor (or anything else), and that nothing is caught between the bottom of the shifter and xfer. 4lo and N are the forward most positions, which pushes the rails into the xfer the furthest. If the "s" shaped link between the shifter and the flat bar were bent or altered, perhaps the shifter doesn't have enough throw to push the rails all the way in. Just a thought and a few things to look at. Please let us know what you find.
