    Comments about ATP Automatic Transmission Shifter Cable:

    I also had issues with the cable shaft being flimsy and getting kinked below the steering column, resulting in the inability to shift. The plastic sheath around the metal shaft is too weak to provide sufficient shaft support. Also, the push-through bracket clamp for the cable next to the transmission needs to be spread out with a screw driver to prevent it from popping back out of the bracket when you shift. Otherwise, cable installation was very easy & for the moment I am able to shift gears from Park to Overdrive, but if I go into Drive or 1, then the shaft under the steering column will get kinked since the plastic sheath is permanently deformed. I even used an old pen body & zip ties to reinforce the assembly, but the metal rod easily overcomes the plastic. Adjustment of the cable was much different than the stock cable I took out, probably a good half inch at the bracket adjustment.

            Comments about ATP Automatic Transmission Shifter Cable:

            Poorly made tried 2 of them both bent and kinked on the first try. Plastic shield too short for cable causing cable to extend out too far and let the cable extend out too far outside of the plastic housing and kinking cable and cutting plastic housing. Causes truck to be stuck in 2nd. gear and shifter will not move, so if you shut off the truck it will not restart.

                A:

                With reference to your inquiry on the ATP Shift Cable - Part No. Y-788, the cable just snaps on it will pop right off with a screwdriver to install this on your 1994 Ford F-150.
