    Like the title says....

    How do I adjust the linkage on a automatic c15 truck. Reverse is in park right now and no park from column shifter.

    Crawl under the cab (driver side) and you will see the shifter rod that is connected to the steering shaft hanging down to the frame threw a bracket that connects another rod that goes to the tranny to shift it.

    Right where the two shifting rods are connected, you will see a small bolt, loosen it a bit so you can move the shifter rod up and down, once you have it where you want it, tighten the bolt up and your done.

    cool...thanx a lot!! I'll do that tomorrow. I'm guessing I need someone to hold the shifter in the right position while I do this??

    I never did. You don't need the truck running to do this.

    With that bolt loose, put the shifter in the middle of park, crawl under again and turn the bellcrank on the tranny so it is in park as well. Center up the linkage and retighten. Crawl out and try it all, right down to low 1. Should be very close, may have to play with it a little to get it 100% and take up all the wear...
