Default Auto Tranny Linkage Issue

Hello all, my name is Jim and I am new to this forum. I have been a ford truck fan for several years now. I own a 1969 F-250 with the 360 and auto tranny. I seem to remember a problem my brother had with his 68 F-250 when we were kids where the transmission shifted itself into reverse when the engine was warming up and the truck took itself for a ride.

Has anyone else heard of this? I am getting ready to make mine a daily driver and want to make any corrections that may be needed. Thanks

Yes, when I was working in a service station back in the 70's that happened to me with a Country Squire station wagon. It backed itself out of the bay and ran into the gas pumps.

I don't remember what the cause was, but it was a known issue.

I did not realize it was a problem with the cars too. I know the trucks would up to 1968 slipped into gear. I want to say Ford changed the design in 69 where you had to pull the shifter toward yourself before it would shift. But its been so long now I just cant be sure.

On my truck you can pull the shifter toward yourself but you can also just shift right on down to reverse.

That's BAD. You should not be able to shift out of Park without lifting the lever.
