okay....sounds like the linkage as gone wonky on account of some transmission mounts....I'll shop for you now~....all I can suggest is that you put a floorjack with woodblock and jack the tranny up about 3/4 of an inch...just enough to show some rotted transmission mounts changing the way the linkage is operating~....can't seem to put a bead on the exact mount right now but you could shimmy under there and compare to know what we are looking for~
