Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Steven, check the engine and gear box mountings, but when the gears jump out of where you have selected it usually means a synchromesh clutch cone has become worn. That will mean a gear box rebuild. It may work out a lot cheaper for you to look for a good second hand box and fit that. You can sometimes pick up bargains at breakers yards. Don't shoot the messanger! Regards John

Locate where the shift cable linkage mount to trans, check for good tight attachment to ball socket, then have some one move shift lever through gears watch to see if cable moves shift arm BOTH directions if not replace cable
