Not really, looks like you have a transmission that doesn't have the cast in ears for the floor shift bracket to bolt to and its been modified to bolt to the transmission pan instead. That should work though but its only using one bolt and probably letting it move from adjustment. I believe if you extend the homade mounting bracket to use two bolts so it can't move and then readjust your linkage it will work.
thank you for your help so you think its not the original transmission?
Probably not, they quit putting the bracket mount on some of the newer transmissions. Although i have seen some older ones without them too. If you car was originally a column shift and was changed over to a floor shift it may not have came with a transmission with the bracket location.
It has had a 360 put in it when it was still in USA but i was not sure about the transmission had been changed or not
Here's where the bracket would bolt, in the two holes on the tailshaft.
Yes thanks must have had a transmission change also.
Looks that way, I would have another support brace welded to that bracket so it can't move and that should work.
ok thanks for your help would you know what diff it could have?
Yes if you post a picture of it I could tell.
Looks like a 7 1/4 to me. How many bolts on the rear housing cover?
I had similar problems with a shifter/transmission/body mismatch. I had to drill a hole on transmission shift lever to give the lever a little more throw. Start with the bracket mount and see if it improves.
I can't see how that homemade piece could move enough to cause your problem. I did have the same problem with all OEM parts build ( column shift to floor shift change ). My shifter hit the console opening before getting low gear. I removed the console and still couldn't get low gear. The factory service manual states to set up the shifter linkage adjust in neutral position. Do that and see if you get both park and low gear ends of travel. It worked for me.
Yes, looks like a 7 1/4.
thank you for your suggestion.
Thanks did what you said started in Neutral and can select all gears.
Looks to me like that plastic bushing where the linkage comes through the bracket is in poor shape as well. Grab the shaft and see if you can make it move laterally. If so, that bushing needs replacing as well. That plus the small movement that might be happening with that home made bracket could be causing it.
