'Bolter
Hello all. I am pulling my hair out. I installed a three speed BW 10 trans in my 55 series 1 3100. I found and purchased the pull handle and cable but can not find any information on how it attaches to the Pull Arm on the trans. There must be some kind of hardware that attaches to that arm that connects to the cable. A picture would help a lot if anyone has this setup. And information or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Just to expand on what Robert offered. There should be a bracket mounted to the lower bolt on the solenoid.
That bracket holds the outer portion of the cable in place. As indicated there is a special bolt with a shoulder type washer that is installed on the OD engagement lever. This tightens the inner cable but allows it to pivot on the lever when it is pulled/pushed.
You can fabricate these components and drill a hole in the bolt just below the head.
If you have an assembly manual, refer to RPO 315 sheet 2.00

EricR Clear back in 1967 on my first overdrive truck ( had a56 ferd overdrive before I knew any better LOL learned on it) I just put a small shifter stick with linkage to shift the overdrive lever. Looked good worked good,looked like a little hurst shifter by the big one. A lot of ways to do it,had a little white ball ,stick about 8 inches tall.
