sorry guys but I can't get search to work.
my shifter linkage popped off on the transfer case to leaving me stuck in fulltime 4x4. could have been worsr I guess.
there has to be a good fix for this problem, bushing fix .com has a poly replacement bushing.

now it all makes sense, the orange clip is the one that holds the cable in place. has anyone used the more expense poly bushing or is it a waste of time? I really like the axle nut idea. how far on did you put the axle nut, wouldn't want to bind the movement? does the end with the bushing screw off so you could work on it on the bench to put the poly bushing on? mighty tight in there if you have big hands.
thx
bob

Checked my transfer case shifter cable connection to the shift lever this evening while I had the Jeep on the rack since everyone is always talking about them failing.

Soon as I touched it, the little plastic bushing fell apart. :roll: Glad I checked it! :D

No problem, I removed the lever to drill a small hole in the stud so I could put a carter key in it. Wrong! Don't waste your time, that is some evermore super HARD metal.
No drill bit I owned would drill it.

So plan "B". Bolted lever back on case, made a small bushing out of some 3/8 metal tubing, greased everything up good with some neverseize , put on the metal bushing then the shifter cable end, then a 6mm spring washer and then installed a heavy duty small hitch pin clip to hold it all in place. It should be a permanent fix!

Note: The 3/8 metal tubing is a perfect fit over the metal stud and inside of the plastic end of the shifter cable. :wink:

It was just simple 3/8 steel fuel line / brake line tubing. I made a small bushing about 5/16" long, it fit over the metal stud perfect and fit the inside of the plastic end on the shift cable! Its metal and will never wear out!
3/8" O.D. x 0.028" Wall thickness.
Cost $: my time.... :D
