    Hi Guys this is my first post... I am new to the forum.. I have purchased a project car but i am struggling to put my 2.85 83 VH back together. if i had taken it apart i might have had some idea but with that said i am slowly working through firstly to get it running.. one of my main problems and the reason for this post is i have no interior in the car.. i have purchased most of what i need but lack the knowledge of how the dash goes back together does any one knows of any instructional videos of this procedure.. another question is that the T bar selector when i pull up the release it does not spring back to hold it in that gear.. i have to push it manually back to hold it into the selected gear.. can this be replaced/fixed or do i need to replace to whole shifter?.. thank you in advance i will post some photos as soon as i load onto computer, but any help or thoughts would be very appreciated..

    I'd suggest you invest in a workshop manual as you will be needing it for other stuff as well
    There is a pretty good how to on here somewhere as I did dash work recently
    Have U got the dash and all the screws etc?
    Sounds like the T bar has lost a spring

    Unless you are familiar with the T bar or U know someone that is
    U are probably best off getting a whole T Bar
    Less heartbreak
    Car looks good by the way
