After doing some research, which didn't take long as you can see, I think the shift tower roll pin broke. When I took the shift cables off the do the swap I did mess with the adjustments on accident thinking I needed to depress them to remove the cables. So I'm guessing that although the gears seemed to select pretty well, doing that mis-adjusted the cables and put extra stress on that pin and it sheared. Since I can pull the shift tower fairly easy, I'll do that this weekend and have a look. If that's not it I'm at a loss. But if that is the case, another trip for Ford's tranny fluid and a cv seal replacement will be next on the list. Ughh..
