Ive got a '72 3spd transfer case that has an extremely worn 2wd/4wd shift fork, causing my t-case to pop outta 4wd into 2wd while driving. I have a shift fork from a vaccum operated '67 3spd case that is the same dimension, but needs a hole drilled and tapped for set screw to fit in newer 3spd case. Anyone done this? Figure id give it a try. May give another option if people cant source a shift fork for their year of t-case.........or someone could sell me theyre fork for dirt cheap:D

Well, tapped and drilled vac shift fork to fit. To do it, you gotta be pretty precise with your hole (dead on, no angles.) And found out im not that precise:D Had to "shave" the set screw to get it to work, but it can be done. Will get me through my next wheelin trip, but im about to have a "like for like" replacement coming soon for when i rebuild my case.
