TH400 Linkage Question

My transmission linkage went 'kerplewy' so I can't shift it using the shift lever on the column.

I can however, shift it manually by rotating the gear selector on the transmission itself.

My question is, on the transmission selector, which direction is the Park gear- rotated all the way counter-clockwise, or all the way clockwise?

I need to be able to find the Neutral gear so that I can tow it on a dolly.

Thanks in advance.

If you have a low range unit, it needs to be in netural, when towing. Check back in a hour or so, I'll have the answer to your question.

With the low range unit, tow with the low range in neutral, transmission in park.

While looking at the linkage, all the way clockwise is park.
