    I think I found the Cause

    The transmission was hard to get into any gear.
    FINALLY got around to working on it ('67 GT).Drained the transmission,
    and found this -

    Anyone know where that SHOULD go?

    It looks like one of the screws and jam nuts used to hold a shift fork to a selector rod in the gearbox.

    Yup.
    pull the cover on the tunnel and pull off the trans top shifter tower and have a look.

    you might want to repair it. partly because if you don't you will forget what the bolt is for and loose it - oh wait, that is me.

    also, sounds like a relatively easy fix and then you are back on the road.
