Did you read one of my responses?

If you remove the shifter at the transmission can you select all ranges?
If so you have a problem with the shifter.

Ok so here is where I am confused. When you say remove the shifter at the transmission and try to select all ranges -- I'm not sure how to do that? In the pic of the transmission I posted, do I remove that whole unit (in the red circle) to be able to try and shift through the gears manually?

I included a pic of the steering column because in the 73's(from what I am told) there is a lockout mechanism connected from the tranny to the steering column. Another forum told me to disconnect that to see if it solved my problem, which it did not.
