RE: Torqueflite Pushbuttons



Congratulations Bill on getting your pushbutton box corrected!

I would like to have the name of the shop/contact info/person as they would be valuable to the “rebuilding” pushbuttons boxes as well as troubleshooting.

 

Thank you,

Gary P.

Update on my Desoto push buttons:  You folks chimed in so quickly on this problem that I got you all mixed up.  Sorry I called Scott Matt.  Anyway turned out the tranny is 1964 727B Torqueflite.  Tranny shop in Boise was able to fabricate new slides inside the shifter housing to reverse the D & 1 buttons so now they’re in the correct positions, R-N-D-2-1, and they function properly.  Don’t ask me to explain how they did it, because as you know, I’m a bonehead mechanic.  Thanks a million for your advice helping me (and them) through this!  Fortunately 3 of the guys in the tranny shop were Mopar gearheads, who have 1960’s Mopars, and were highly motivated to solve this problem.

Bill,

Another idea/option is to contact Cameron McKovich, an online Ebay seller of Forward Look items, who is reproducing/repairing 1956-61 Torqueflite & Powerflite pushbuttons.  I will attempt to attach pictures of his Ebay AD so you may contact him.

Bill, I am using an “early” pushbutton assembly in my ’56 Plymouth with an aluminum case 1965 slip-yoke 727 and have not gotten to finishing that modification as yet.  However, the “simple” solution is to re-label the incorrect buttons on the face.  Change D to 1 and vice versa.

Bill, This may seem simplistic, but since you already know that the transmission switch made the push buttons out-of-order, might you be able to switch the buttons to make the Drive and First buttons correct?  Many of the buttons have a "dog-leg" which might make that difficult (especially on 57-59 Mopars), but since the buttons are "push-on", might be worth looking at a a simple "fix".  Much easier that opening up the tranny.....

I always look for the simplest way to fix things (Keep It Simple, Stupid -KISS)

Hi, Gary -

Didn't think I'd be contacting you again since I got the 1960 Desoto, but I still look at your website occasionally, because of my interest in Mopars.  Anyway, the restorers of my car put a later model Torqueflite tranny in it.  It's aluminum with park sprag so I'm guessing at this point it might be a 727, around 1963.  Before I bought it, seller disclosed that tranny worked fine, but pushbuttons were out of order.  It's does function properly, but to put it in Drive, I have to push First.  To get First, I have to push Drive.  In other words the horizontal pattern on this car actually is R-N-1-2-D, whereas it should be R-N-D-2-1.  So D & 1 are just reversed.  Do you, or any of your members, know what has to be done to correct this?  I've done quite a bit of research on your site, as well as FL Net, and seems there were different PB housings used in different cars and at different times, including one that was in the R-N-1-2-D configuration, perhaps for racing set-ups.  But I'm not sure of whether this can be changed with the cable, slides or actuator???  Any ideas?

Thanks,

Bill
