Ok here is the gig I have a 71 pinto W/ a 302 and a c-4 manual valve body reverse pattern, I took it out for my weekly drive and realized it wouldn't shift into 2nd but everything else was perfect. Then I put it into park got out opened the garage got back in and it was stuck between park and reverse so it would actually back up but it was grinding on the park pin I took the cable off at the tranny and everything seemed up to par there but i cant physically move the lever on the trans any suggestions before I pull it out ??

Before you pull it out pull the pan and valve body. The linkage may have come off the manual valve in the valve body.

Thank you ! Is there any relation between the 2 ? It just seemed kind of weird to loose second gear like that ?

Since the band struts fell out it is possible that the intermediate band is broken. You can try to put the struts back in and adjust the band. If it doesn't work you will need to replace the band.

There is an aftermarket "snap band".​

Very easy to install without transmission removal.​

For the intermediate band only.​
