First, a littke history: I have an 89 K5 that I purchased last November, and I am trying to make it a daily driver. It has a 2" suspension lift and a 3" body lift. It also has a carbureted 350 with a semi-wild cam, and has quite a bit of torque. Question #1: I recently tightened up the bolts on the steering column that hold the tilt wheel brackets in place. After doing this, it became apparent that the previous owner neglected to install a lengthend shift rod to compensate for the body lift, and now the detents in the 700R4 don't line up with the gates in the column shifter. When I pull away from a stop too quickly (I do so like to give it a little gas every now and then), the torque of the motor causes the column shifter to hit a gate, and it shfits out of overdrive, and into drive. Not a big deal, because I can always shift back into OD when I need to, but I am lazy. I am wondering if there is any sort of conversion that I can do to replace the shift rod with a flexible cable, or if there is an easy way to fix this, other than cutting the shift rod and welding a spacer (I don't weld). I would prefer a cable conversion, just because I think it would be easier to adjust, and it would easily compensate for the movement of the engine torque. Question #2: The slip-yoke (not the u-joints, they are all new) in the front driveshaft has an exceesive amount of play in it, and I was told that this is rebuildable. However, I can't find anywhere to get parts to rebuild it with. Any ideas about where I could go to find these parts? A new or rebuilt driveshaft is a bit out of my budget at this point.
