2nd & 4th should be 10 degrees back of vertical.
It is possible to access the shift arm that is held by a clamp bolt (1/2"
head I think) from under the car and sliding the shaft forward a tad, but it
isn't an easy operation.  Hard part is retightening it without disturbing
the new position.

Hi list,

Now that my stuck clutch is free again, I'm on to the next issues.

The first is the gear change - it is a Series II mechanism.  The adjustment 
appears to be off - the lever moves very far forward of vertical to get 
first (especially) & third,, and very far aft of vertical to get 
reverse.  2nd & 4th are almost vertical.  Also, the reverse light switch 
does not engage - the metal tab on the shift mechanism does not hit the 
switch.  Obviously, I can adjust the tab for the reverse gear switch from 
inside the car.  Are there any trick to adjusting the mechanism (I confess 
it's been a while since I've checked a manual . . . ).

The other issues involves the AC compressor, and probably is a question for 
the US listers.  I need a new compressor, but cannot find any part numbers 
on the one that is one the car. I don't want to disable the car by removing 
the compressor unless necessary.  I have a parts/repair manual for a York 
Type 63 compressor.  Does that sound right?  Are there any more modern 
(i.e., efficient/reliable) upgrades.

As always, any assistance is most appreciated!
