    For those of you that might be using an Art Carr/Winters gated shifter with your 700R4s....I have a question. I'm in the process of installing the shifter on my 700 and one thing I'm supposed to do is verify that the gate slots on the shifter match up with detents on the "rooster's head" bracket in the trans (if that makes sense).

    I can't adjust the shifter such that I get full detent seating in Park and 1st gear at the same time. In other words, if I adjust it so that it's fully seated in Park, it's not fully seated when I pull it down to First, and vice versa.

    The shifter was originally used for a Ford C4 but I purchased a 700R4 gate plate and cable mounting hardware for it assuming that all the shifters are the same in terms of throw, etc. - just the gates and mounting hardware were different. Anyone else ever have this problem?

    TIA,
    Todd Z.

    Yea mine works good also. I had to adjust it just so the cable would reach when in park but it hits all the gears fine.

    Thanks for the inputs, guys. After thinking about it a little more, I think maybe if I grind a bit on the gate plate in the Park position, I might be able to get it to seat correctly.
