Torqueflite cable very stiff

Post by Giles »

My CV8 II has not run for a long time. The column-mounted gear lever is very stiff, needs 2 hands to change gear and so much pressure it seems like something is about to break. Can anyone advise how to free it?
Many thanks, Giles

I'd actually recommend disconnecting the entire cable from the selector and the trans and checking that the cable itself moves freely - on an Interceptor, the cables have solid rods on each end which sometimes bend, and are responsible for them binding. If this is the problem, just re-straighten each end, then re-connect and re-adjust if necessary.
