    know exactly what he's talking about about, just had the same issue on my '95 softail...waiting to hear what the dealer service has to say. I can easily downshift, but not upshift, the lever doesn't spring back/return, it is just loose and can be moved up and down...nothing on the outside looks loose or broken

How to adjust the column shifter on a 1951 chevy deluxe car


Hello Jeff Poe,

Assuming you are talking about the MANUAL TRANSMISSION... simply because of the "FASTWAY" product you are posted under... (appears to be the old "three on the tree") column shifter.

And

Assuming ALL your shift bushings are new & firm
You can have an assistant find and hold the neutral
(fully disengaged... but middle of the "H" position)

In the car: Have your assistant select the first & reverse positons. Under the vehicle: Carefully observe the throw in each direction.

Underneath at the transmission shift lever: Pull the cotter-pin and remove the washer from 1st (1st & reverse) gear shift lever.

Manually operate the shift lever to feel the exact center of its disengaged position (after assuring your assistant is holding the shift lever in the middle of the lever throw... adjust the lever to lengthen or shorten to precisely match that centered position.
If the vehicle has been used... very little adjustment should be required. Place the pivot pin, restore the washer and fit a new cotter-pin.

Repeat the process for the 2nd (2nd & 3rd) gear shift lever.

Hope this helps.

Wont go in 2nd gear


If it will go into all other gears but not second, the transmission may have damage like a bent shift fork, damaged gears and/or shift drum. If the bike has been raced or accelerated hard and gear shifts have been missed, it most likely has transmission damage and the engine will have to come out and be torn down in order to repair. If the bike was hopping in and out of second gear before it stopped going into second, the transmission is most likely damaged.
One more thing to try is to take the shift lever and push momentarily down or up on the lever and see if it smoothly returns to its original center position. If it does return to the center position the lever is not sticking and ir it does not return to center position then the shift lever is sticking and that will keep the trans from up or down shifting.

Shifter lever won't return to the " center " position always. The problem is intermittent and seems to occur more in the heat. I've heard there may be something binding the mechanism....


Follow the shifter reach rod that runs from the shift lever back to a short lever on the transmission. Take the nut off and take the rod loose from this short lever. Then, move the forward like you are going to shift into low gear but don't actually shift the transmission into gear. Feel for the spring tension. Then, move the lever backwards and feel for the spring tension there. Check the shift lever and the reach rod for binding. If you don't feel the spring tension trying to return the lever back to the center, it's likely that the shifter pawl return spring is broken. This spring is what returns the shifter lever back to 'center". But,the temperature of the transmission will not change this. If the spring is broken, it's broken cold or hot. If the spring is good and there is not bind in the linkage, the problem may be in the shifter cam mechanism inside the transmission. Either way, this is an internal issue in the transmission.

Good Luck

I turn off the car, but key will not come out of ignition. Lock on shifter doesnt work. I can shift without pushing button on shifter. This is an automatic.


We had this problem on 06 and it is the shift button that doesn't pop out. You may be able to pull it out so you can remove the key for now. We had ours fixed under warranty (replaced)
