So I went to swap out my '98 LGT 4EAT back to it's original transmission as I had taken it out to repair (Duty C etc) but
I evidently fubar'd the oil pump putting it back in because once it was fully seated it would not turn more than .5-1" But that isn't my issue. When I put the temp trany back into car I can not get the sifter cable to install correctly. Even after putting the inside adjuster screw all the way forward/inward. I still need about a 1/2" further. No man handling to get it to work either.
Note this is like the 3 or 4th time installing auto trans into this particular car.
I went by the FSM Inhibitor Switch and adjusting guidelines.
I looked at the lever assembly and it seems 100% AOK. IE not bent out of shape etc. (though I don't have a picture of one)
I'm at a loss.
