    Hello. I need help. I have a 1963 fury with a 440 & assume a 727 torqueflight. when the car gets hot,(after 15 miles approx.) (not over heating hot) when I stop, the push button will not chg positions, it acts sticky like its not moving. if I shut the car off it will not start for about 30 min. I assume because the car is not in neutral & activating the safety switch. but after the 30 min the car will shift into neutral & start. I assume there is some sorta thermal expansion going on with the system? is it the cable? the shift mechanism in the dash? the safety switch in the trans? im at a loss here. thx for any help. Don.

    Start with pulling the button assembly out far enough to clean the mechanism with the cables attached. Might get messy put plenty of rags down to cover the carpet. WD 40 works pretty good. Same problem with a 62 we had.Worked for us.

    do you have headers or manifolds? make sure the shift cable is not rubbing on hot exhaust.

      I would love to do that but I have new fone and no pix. I will take one this evening. It's a nice car. Stock appearing mostly. Sure don't want to make waves. I apologize. Don.

        Even with manifolds make sure the cable isn't making contact with the exhaust pipe. The outside of the cable housing is plastic and will melt making the cable inside stick.

                    Nope, it's plastic. It will melt!

                    Had to step away for a bit. Looks real nice! Wait till you get a load of member's @383man s '63. Looks very similar. You can see by my avatar that I'm into the early "B" car.

                    Welcome aboard, you'll like it here. I'll try and post up the adjustment proceedures for the cable shift. But not till I get back from picking up a pizza that I ordered.

                    thanks to all yall. im a car guy, not loyal to one brand, I hope that don't piss nobody off. I feel all AMERICAN brands deserve love and have good & bad qualities. ive owned a lot of cars most all American brands. this is my second mopar. my other was a 69 dart slant 6. nice driver.

                    The cable needs to be tested to be certain it moves freely.!st thing though id to get the car in the air and see if the cable is melted or kinked anywhere.
