SA 3 speed shifter not holding 1st gear.
My wife's 73 Breeze isn't staying in 1st gear. It will stay in 1st when you hold it there firmly with your thumb, but the shifter does not seem to "grab" that position at all.
Before I started messing with adjustments, I wanted to ask whether this sounds like a cable length adjustment issue or a wear issue in the shifter.
