Well I dropped the column today and replaced the shift cable. Took me about an hour to complete.
I felt I should post picture of the pivot at the top of the column. I used a good quality white lithium grease and worked it really well.
Before it was tight to drop to first gear. Now it is smooth all the way.
I then hooked the cable up. Hopefully this problem will be a thing of the past.
Bruce , all unit functions work. Just no led display on screen. Just have to guess on settings. Display did work when i got the car but display sorta fizzled out.' Its 25 years old so its expected. All other fuel/speedo displays work. fuses and relays good and checked under dash and hidden also under hood. i figure the led display is shot. Checked with Logan but he dont fix them. Any more ideas before i pull it out and get a replacement?
I would try to approach down a diagnostic flow like this:
Is the display getting power? Oddly enough this can be rarely be solved by cleaning and reconnecting the battery cable stack -- there are multiple positive cables coming to the battery and one is not getting a good connection.
If the control display is getting power then check to see if it is simply turned too dark
If it is getting power and it is not commanded off then it may be malfunctioning and needs replacement.
