The Powerglide Guide
Powerglide transmissions lack the simplicity of connecting a shifting linkage to them that later GM automatic transmissions adopted. As a result there exist many different range select shafts with their differences. We are using the later model Range Select Shaft with its removable levers from 1968 and up. This shaft allows us to use a lever system that will work.
If your Powerglide Transmission shift lever is not removable, then you must also purchase and install the kit that includes a new Range Select Shaft.
This version would require a new range select shaft in order to use a later style GM linkage or universal column kit
If your PowerGlide looks like this then you have a column shift linkage that can be removed, and you do not need to replace the range select shaft in your transmission.
