I have a 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente that I am restoring and I'm trying to make it drive as smoothly as possible. However, the car's gear shifter lever on the steering column (automatic transmission) is super easy to move around. Barely any pressure is required to change gears in the car.
This wouldn't be that big of a problem but the car will sometimes go from park to reverse with hardly a bump to the lever. Are there any adjustments I can make to tighten the gear shifter so that it's not so easy to shift? Or does this sound more like something is worn out on the transmission/shifting components? Thanks in advance!
