    Any thoughts as to what could be causing it to bind up.

    I had a 77 Type LT with a 305 and it had a factory ratchet shifter. It worked awesome. Wish my 80 Base model had one. Checked our local yard and none of the Camaros have one.

    Cool, I had no idea GM offered those in the '70s.

    Anyway to soak just the moving moving metal parts in WD40? Maybe that would get it going.

    OOOOO
    I am going to rush off to the storeage shed and check my new Z-28 for this.
    Even though I get annoyed with fixing broken stuff on cars I love finding out new things.
    I might take that shifter off your hands Speed if mine doesnt already have this.

    I've got 2 cars with the factory ratchet shifter, one is my 76 Camaro which i was surprised it had one. The other is a PHS documented 69 GTO it came with one from the factory. I've got a his/hers for the GTO but hesitant to swap it out on that car.
