SOURCE: 3 speed shifter conversion
I have the same problem on a 65 c10 3 speed. Nothing is wrong with the mechanism, use the brackets from the kit and/or bend the original ones (they are relatively heavy gauge and will have to put them in a vise to do so). Get the rods to switch sides without colliding with each other.
The alternative i originally thought was to turn the entire shifter mechanism around, but that failed
Alternatively just leave it alone, and be the only one who knows how to drive the truck

You have to take apart the 4x4 hub to get to the lock nut for the bearings then you have to reome the hub and rotor assy,then you have to press the wheel studs out to remove the rotor,then reverse the process.

your transmission has possibly been rebuilt with stronger springs put in. No worries. have been running mine for along while without any problems. Better this than slipping, but it is a bit annoying.

Don't know on that exact one but in general you just have too remove any console in the way, unscrew the knob, remove the shifter boot, put it in neutral and remove the bolts from the top cap and pull the shifter straight up. I have seen some that you had too lift the cap and remove a pin going thru the swivel ball from side to side that holds the shifter in place. Just make sure that nothing falls out and into the transmission. Go slow, have a good light and be careful. When you put the shifter back in make sure it drops back in exactly as it came out, Don't let it get on the wrong side of the forks and forcing it can break off the tip of the shifter. It generally is not a difficult thing to do once you figure out how to get the center console and boot out of the way.
On most Toyota truck straight shifts the problems that I have seen (jumping out of gear & refusing to go into 1st or 2nd) are a little deeper than the shifter bushing. I'm not a transmission specialist so anything any deeper went too the guy 2 bays down.
Most mechanic work is just common sense and a LACK of force!
