i have a 1970 Torino that I am in the process of a full restore. It sat in a field roughly 30 years, needless to say there was a lot of rust and basically everything had to be replaced. I just got the engine running last week, hooked up disc brakes tonight and decided to try out the transmission for the 1st time. It is a column shift and the shifter seems to be working, it is moving the linkage underneath when put into gear, however the transmission wont engage. What could be the problem here? I still have not connected the radiator and I haven't checked the vacuum line to the trans but I'm sure it is dry rotten or missing. I'm open to suggestions as I would like to avoid having the remove the engine and trans for a while, I was saving that for the final part of the restoration.
