Would suggest you check out a couple of advertisers in Quicksilver. Those would be Big M and Mac’s Antique Auto. You missed the auction at Mercuryland (which is covered in this issue as well) because you could have found what you are looking for there at a very reasonable price. What didn’t sell is now crushed.
As to the issue with the shift linkage, I am guessing it involves normal wear in the steering column part of the linkage. Try some lubrication on the moving parts to see if you can free them up a bit. The problem could be internal to the transmission but it sounds like you are able to get things working under the hood. Always try the simplest thing first.
