I have a 1985 Chevy k20. When I take it out of drive, the shift indicator just moves sloppily and it doesn't go into the right gear. I replaced the shift indicator.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is it in the column? Replaced the instrument
cluster back cause the cable tab holder was
broken. But it didn't fix it. Any help would be
great.

Check your linkage, it may be loose and slipping.

Definitely your shift linkage

I'm not a mechanic and got this truck to tinker and teach myself to work on vehicles. Is this something I can do our should I take it to a mechanic? And thank you guys for your help.

I just looked under there and the hardware on the transfer case is really loose. Is there supposed to be a bolt holding the bracket on to the transfer case?
