BA10/5 with NP231...4WD shift linkage?

I'm putting an NP231 behind a BA10/5 and the shifter rod is about 2 inches short on the 207 shift assembly. Do I need a new shift mechanism or is there a way to rig it to work?

I ran into this issue when I did my Nv3550/Np231 swap. I would try to find the linkage from a 231. Heres a link to advanced adapter where I got a bracket, check it out and see if there is one for you. http://www.advanceadapters.com/categ...+Brackets.html

I didn't see what i need on that site.



Here's the piece that looks too short, it needs to be maybe 2 inches longer.

I don't see why you couldn't cut it in half and weld in what you need to make it fit.

We have been messing around and came up with 2.5" that we need to make it longer and it should work well after that. More than likely we will just cut and weld.

Just to get some closure to this thread - the linkage part that I posted a picture of was cut and lengthened by the appropriate amount. Seems to shift fine, although the Jeep is not drivable right now. I did use the entire 231 shifter assembly because the 207 seemed too different to be able to work.
