If there an easy way to adjust the transfercase shifter linkage? How can you tell if the gear shifter is engaged fully into gear without runing the motor? Can the adjustments be made without removing the transmission floor cover? I'm having trouble finding the regular 2 wheel drive gear. Thx Inadvance

Often, corrosion on the shifter pivot makes things hard to shift, or, corrosion on the front drive acctuation rod that attaches to the nose cone can cause hard shifting issues also..


I would remove the boot on the tunnel, and see what is going on under there.


Once you look at it, and see how things should move, it will become more clear as to what is really going on.


Good luck!

Alternatively, you can drop the skid plate and douche your linkage w/ PB Blaster - that should help.

Of course, once you get under there, you may discover a few other projects!

Can the linkage adjustments be made working from underneath the truck? Thx

Ignore the transmission, this one is different. The linkage to your transfer case is the same. The output (where your front driveshaft connects) has one connection that goes in and out. That one is your 4wd vs. 2wd. The other connection on the top of the transfer case will rotate. That controls High/Neutral/Low. You will have a gate that is not shown in the picture. This gate prevents the stock shifter from going into 2Low and is located near the top of the transmission where the shifter goes through the floor. If you see some sort of vacuum monster under there, someone swapped in some older Cruiser parts. The one shown is a '78.
