Had my tranny out twice in the last year or so. I think it is by the linkage. It has to be because that is how it works. 5 minutes and you can find it. Why don't you see if you are getting power back there and check for ground first.
Nice truck by the way!
I love little baby ducks, old pick-up trucks, slow-moving trains, and rain
I love little country streams, sleep without dreams, sunday school in may,
And I love you too
