1960 Thunderbird shifter arm removal

Discussion in '1955 - 1966 Classic Ford Thunderbird' started by infinite monkeys, Aug 24, 2017.

  1. I'm in the process of replacing the shifter arm and I'm wondering how it fits on the tube. Will the arm slide off as I pull the tube from the inside, or is the arm held in place somehow and needs to be disconnected prior to pulling on the tube?

    Thanks.
     
  2. So I got the shifter tube off. Seems the arm is being held in place by the steering shaft and won't come out. So the next question is how do I pull the steering shaft out so I can remove the arm.
     
  3. I've recently disassembled my own steering column and have taken notes through the whole process. Call me at 774-283-3733 and I can tell you how to do it. If there is much interest, I can post my disassembly notes here but for one on one, it's easier to explain it verbally.
