85 C10, 4.3L V6, 3Sp manual, 275K miles, one owner. The standard column shift feels a little sloppy and will hang up in neutral when going from 3rd to 1st unless you are careful about how you do it. From 3rd, move the shift lever straight up to detent, then straight back, then straight down to 1st and its fine. If you get in a hurry and shift it like an upside-down "U" it will hang up. When it hangs up, you have to turn off the engine, pop the hood and move the transmission linkage into 1st. This is rather annoying at traffic lights. I have the GM shop manual from Helm, the lower bearing adjustment seems to be at its limit to take up clearance. The steering is fine and all of the other shifting is fine. Are there any common wear items in these shift columns? Anyone else had this problem?
