My Trans starts in 2nd. I want to start in 1st

Hi all,

I've got 3 190d's and 2 start in 2nd and one starts in 1st. I would like to have them all start in first gear. The '84 starts in first. They have behaved this way since I purchased them. It is my belief, though I donít have the records, that the '84 has a rebuilt transmission.

Anyway, is there any way to get my transmission to start in first gear? Tune the vacuum lines or adjust the cable?

I search the forum but could not find any definitive answers.

Thanks for your help!

Bump for an interesting question... I'd like to see the answer to this, too!

Currently converting a 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60 to use a 1985 300D engine and tranny... Engine/tranny are in, no transfer case or wiring yet.
