    Do you mean it won't shift at all? I assume the clutch cable has been adjusted. Seems like there have been a few threads on here about cable attachments bending or something. Also, when you pulled the shifter from inside the cab, be sure to inspect the plastic grommet that the shifter seats into, they wear out and make shifting impossible. It looks like a short shotgun shell wad. They are only a few bucks but could be your problem. Hope you get it figured out.

    It's the cable adjustment. Under the hood just pull the cable housing down and away from the fire wall. Then while holding it turn the adjuster tell it just about to contact the firewall.
