How do you adjust the gear indicator on a 1988 truck?
At the bottom of the steering column shroud, there should be a silver metal clip, which has a string tied to it. The other end is connected to the shifter up in the column. Move it to align the indicator on the instrument cluster. Be careful not to pull it too tight in that it may break. I learned the hard way.
