75 230 Auto won't come out of park??
I just got a 75 230, 6 cylinder, 140K with a auto tranny that has been on blocks and hasn't run for 8 years. I made it run but the starter will only turn over the motor once in while and it will just spin up sounding like the starter bendix is bad?? I can't get the car out of gear? I looked at the manual and it shows the shift pattern but the streering column mounted shifter will not budge. I have tried it running, not, running, ebrake/brakes on/off, etc. I don't want to force it and I have even jacked the car up in the rear and rocked the wheels back and forth to try and un jam the linkage if it was jammed. What really stumps me is that with the car in park and the rear wheels off the ground if I turn the rear wheel hard enough it will turn the wheels even though the tranny is in park? Anyone have any ideas?? Benzs are new to me so I am clueless about them. Sorry for the long post
