Screamintrashcan is on a distinguished road

OK, here's a blast from the past, On my 'ol 82 Chev, the range selector used to pop into neutral constantly from low range. After much screwing around, and not going after what became, later, the obvious, the rubber bootie around the shift lever had hardened up just enough to apply the required pressure to pop the t case into neutral given the appropriate conditions. I don't know how many Lbs of gear teeth I chewed off the gears in there, and off the park pin, first reaching for the 4x4 selector and trying to rip it into gear, then trying to put the auto shifter into park... I guess thats why my forehead is almost concave... (from slapping it with the palm of my hand) Always remember, shut the engine off!!!!!!!!
