I'm re-assembling my mates '53 truck and although I'm putting it back as taken apart it doesn't look right to me . The shifter rod furthest from the driver is on an angle is assembled as it came apart .ie there is a plain shank that goes through a rubber push which then takes a washer and split pin.
Both of these point down the shaft towards the steering box. To make them go in straight the bottom one wants taking off and reversing so the pin points upwards ?
Coudl someone take a look at their linkage and tell me which way is correct please ?
