You're welcome, Mike.
Let me kniow how it works.
Jake, Basset Hound, one of three rescues here whom are 'spoiled' to the hilt...
We lost our rescue mutt after fourteen great years and she was our child, she's gone two years now and it still hurts. I'm not convinced that she can be replaced.
So I ran down to Sears hardware and bought a set of 1/4" drive 12 point socket set and another set of 1/4" drive sockets that they call universal sockets. They are supposed to fit 6 pt, 12 pt, torx and even turn stripped heads. I almost can't wait until I need to use one to see how it works. Sounds too good to be true but worth a shot.
The 1/4 12 point was good and I got the seal removed but in the process I also had the shifter lever and parking pin come out. I put the lever assembly back the only way that I think that it COULD go back in but I'm a little worried.
There was a spring loaded lever that I had to pry back in order to get the park pin in between it and fixed piece of metal and the pin is horizontal and facing the rear of the transmission. What bothers me is if removing the pin has disturbed any other internal parts. Also if this is a parking pin then what selects the shift range in the transmission? The pin is the only thing attached to the shifting lever so it must somehow shift gears, no?
Are you familiar with the assembly? Anyone?
