It stuck in reverse and is that way when it starts. Putting it in neutral or forward does nothing, it still goes reverse. Took the cover off and discovered that that the gear lever movesto the reverse position (goes forward) but stays there. Can put it back by hand but anytime the shifter goes to reverse the lever moves and once again sticks there. Moving it by hand seems to work OK.Looked for the obvious something broken or disconnected but don't see anything. Looked at both the motor and inside the shift lever box. Not mechanically inclined much so there could be something broken I just don't see. Also I got themanual that covers 1956 to 1972 motors if there is something there that can help me.
