73 Corvette won't start in park

by Ernie

My 73 Corvette (automatic) has been parked all winter. Now when I try to start it in park, it will not turn over in park. If I hold the shifter forward, it will start. Starts ok in neutral. I put new headers on it this winter and cleaned up the motor area. That required that I remove the manifold and had disconnected wires and vacuum lines. Everything worked fine before I started this project. Any ideas?
