We had this problem w/ our truck - the solution was a new shifter box and
replacing the little 'cup' on the column. No problems since!

BTW, I have been quiet for a while, but I've been busy... am replacing the
bed wood and POR-15ing the frame, bedmetal and a bunch of my skin :)

While the bed is off, I did the Old Car Topsy thing - 'well, shoot - let's
replace the brake lines... and those shackles could use some help... oh
geez, and the wheel seals... bearings while were in there... etcetc.'
I'll throw a photo up on our web page when its all done.
