I was told that the broken transmission shift cable was obsolete with no replacement available so I should buy a new motorhome. My Pace Arrow has 37,000 miles on it and is a 1998 model on a 1997 Ford F53 chassis and in my calls to Fleetwood and Ford they offer no solutions. Makes me sick.

Would appreciate any suggestions or direction to go to find part. Did notice on the new motorhomes that they have a heat shield on the cable as it passes by the exhaust but that the shift cables on the F53 chassis newer then mine with the V10 Ford engine will not work.

Anyway, thanks. edwardfinley@hotmail.com

Is there any way you could remove the old assembly take it to a machine shop and have a replacement cable assembly fabricated?

Just a thought, Jim

Was it a Ford truck dealer or just a dealer? If its a cable do you have two ends from shift and trans end? If you do splice in a new cable useing cable clamps useing two clamps if you have to so new cable won't slip. If its broken off on one of these two points than do as suggested bring to machine shop just make sure you have correct length.

You may want to check with salvage yards on a chassis that uses the same shift cable; trucks or RVs that have had wrecks or fires but still have a good shift cable.
