Re: 62 Plymouth 727 Stuck in 1st Gear after layup HELP



It might Simply Be cable adjustment. There is a very specific procedure when you install and adjust the shifter cable to get it right.

I would not do what they say that bothers me. If it worked fine the first time maybe check the fluid and I am not sure if it has a kickdown thats cable or linkage but make sure thats hooked up and adjusted correctly. The cable could be bent or binding in the sheath or the linkage could be stuck. The 727s I have delt with had manual valve bodies. If it drove fine before its gotta be something easy hopefully.

Must be the time for Tranny troubles

Tried to take my recent restored 62 Plymouth SF with zero Miles for the first drive
It has been in heated storage for three months
I only have reverse and first gear
It will not shift out of first gear
The 727 is completely rebuilt with a new torque converter.
The shop that rebuilt it told me to roll back in reverse and shift into first to try and unlock it
I wanted to check with you guys before I tried that and if you know of a better solution other than pulling it
Any ideas ?
