Post by Sam_snead01 on Sun Feb 13, 2011 8:59 pm

I recently purchased a 74 el camino ss with a floor shifter. The lever is very hard to move. I disconected the cable from the lever and it shifted very smoother so I am assuming the problem is in the cable. The problem i am having is finding a new cable. Is there a place to get one? Do have to fabricate my own? Is there a b&m set up that will work with a factory console? any help would be great. Thanks
