First is towards you, and down. To shift to 2nd, lift up, and push towards the dash, then up more to 2nd. Three distinct motions.

To speed things up, you could move the linkage (rotate counter clockwise on the column) to the left side. Now first is up, and towards you, and second is down, and towards the dash. But because of the tilt/angle of the column, it's more of a straight down motion. Get up to speed, and slap down with your left hand for the 1-2 shift.

Thanks, done carefully, getting it hot (not too hot) and chilling it water or nonflammable pen lube, has merits. But Most pen lubes today are using stuff like propane for propellant, so there is a huge danger with most pen lubes to lighting yourself up if the fluid or propellant is flammable, and or the bolt head is still glowing red. But I do like the idea of heating the bolt by wire welding some on the head.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Applicants? Do you run a company?

3 on the tree pre-dates me by quite a bit, but my high school g/f's dad had an old Chevy van with one and "taught" me to drive it. Its not really that hard, its still an H pattern, just sideways. I got to play around with one again a few months back when we got my buddy's bone stock Early Bronco running. That was a hoot to just bebop around Firestone in.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

I figured there would be more snow. We were up there three weeks ago and it was cold as hell. We spent the night at the top of Hancock Pass.

So is there snow on the road to Tincup?
