Congratulations. If it has a Packard shift linkage the levers are differently shaped and positioned but the basic parts, operation, and lube issues are the same as in the pre 51 models. Those have shifting problems when lack of lube results in rust and corrosion forming around the shift tube and making the levers at the bottom of the steering column stick on the tube -- particularly the upper 2-3 lever which gets no lube but can catch condensed moisture running down the tube. The levers must be free to rotate individually so when one is selected the other is not trying to move at the same time and select two gears at once.
